Two Months to Meet UST Operator Training Requirement

The deadline for truckstop or travel plaza operators of underground storage tank (UST) systems to complete federally mandated underground storage tank UST operator training is just two months away on Aug. 8.

In keeping with NATSO’s fundamental purpose to deliver solutions to members’ challenges, NATSO has partnered with Practical American Safety Solutions (PASS) to offer an online training program that meets the federal and state operator training requirements. The NATSO/PASS online registration for UST operator training can be found here. If you navigate to the PASS testing site through a different link, be sure to select NATSO as your Director. Class A/B training is $179.99, and Class C training is $12.99.

Each UST system or group of UST systems at a facility must have a Class A, Class B and Class C operator designated and trained according to the guidelines by Aug. 8, 2012. A Class C operator must be onsite at all times. Read the full Stop Watch article hereto learn more about the requirements of each class.

It is important to note that the training requirements are written by each individual state and several states have not finished their regulations. Thus, operators are required to complete training only in the states that have adopted operator training regulations.State-specific information can be found here.
