If You Own or Operate Regulated USTs, You Need This Course!
This Underground Storage Tank (UST) Operator Training Course is required for fuel storage tank facilities. The EPA has established new minimum training requirements for designated Class A, Class B, and Class C operators to ensure that those who own and operate regulated underground storage tanks understand how to operate and maintain their UST systems properly.
UST Operator Classes
For the purposes of UST operator training requirements, three classes of operators have been identified:
- The Class A operator is typically the manager in charge of resources and personnel and is responsible for operating and maintaining the regulated UST system.
- The Class B operator is designated by the owner/operator to have day-to-day responsibility for the regulated UST system.
- The Class C operator is an individual designated by the owner/operator to be responsible for initially responding to emergencies and typically controls the dispensing or sale of regulated substances.
Each regulated UST facility must have a Class A, Class B, and Class C operator designated. All individuals designated as Class A, B, or C operators must, at a minimum, be trained according to the corresponding criteria.
All attendees are asked to bring their FOI (facility operation inspection) to the training.
