Additional Information:

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. The federal regulations dictate that all regulated UST facilities must have a trained Class A, B, and C operator by October 13, 2018.

Topics Covered

The NJDEP is combining the subjects for Class A and Class B in this new class that will cover the federally required training curriculum for A/B operators. Topics include:

  • Regulatory requirements applicable to UST systems;
  • Financial responsibility;
  • Notification and storage tank registration;
  • Environmental and regulatory consequences of releases;
  • Operation and maintenance of regulated UST systems;
  • Spill and overfill prevention;
  • Release detection and related reporting;
  • Corrosion protection and related testing;
  • Product and equipment compatibility; and
  • Training requirements for Class C operators (A/B operators may be responsible for training).

Completion of the A/B operator training program requires passing the Class A/B operator examination given by the International Code Council (ICC).

NJDEP staff from the Bureau of UST Compliance & Enforcement will be teaching this program and available throughout the course to answer questions regarding the new federal regulations.
