Below is some information on the school.
The Marine Corps Petroleum Training Division provides professional military instruction to the students, and technical support to the Marine Corps as well. Fort Lee has been home for formal Marine Corps 1391 Bulk Fuel training since 1983.
The responsibilities range from professional instruction and curriculum development to providing technical expertise and support as Bulk Fuel subject matter experts to HQMC. The job of the instructors is demanding but gratifying with an average of over 350 basic students graduating every year.
After graduation the student goes on to meet the ever demanding petroleum engineering needs of the United States Marine Corps. The following is a list of courses and brief description of what's currently available at the Bulk Fuel Training Division:
BULK FUEL SPECIALIST COURSE:
A six week course, designed to teach the individual Marine and soldier the basic fundamentals of receiving, storing, issuing, dispensing, and shipping of petroleum products. The course is divided into two three week segments. In segment one the student receives classroom instruction and hands-on training on the basics of safety; sampling, gauging; fire fighting; and is introduced to the environmental considerations and impact of a petroleum operation.
The student is then ready to move to the second segment where he or she is exposed to the more unique side of the Marine Corps petroleum field where the student receives classroom instruction and hands-on training with the latest tactical fuel systems equipment and fuel accounting procedures. The Helicopter Expedient Refueling System, Tactical Airfield Fuel Dispensing System, SIXCON module, and components of the Amphibious Assault Fuel System are just a few of the systems and equipment the student will be exposed to while attending the Bulk Fuel Specialist course.
