UST Training has just renewed our contract with Arizona Department of Environmental Quality (ADEQ) to provide another year of high-quality online UST operator training at no cost to Arizona Class A/B and C UST operators. No cost, meaning the Arizona operator pays nothing.
It’s super simple. We here at UST Training provide free online operator training for all qualifying Class A/B and Class C UST operators. Operators complete the work from work or home and become certified. UST Training gets reimbursed for every verified certificate of completion.
From October 2020 to March 2023, we trained 1,133 Class A/B UST operators and 2,460 Class C operators. We are pretty sure that by this October, we will have trained personnel for virtually every single site in the entire state of Arizona.
We have been providing the service to Arizona for nearly 3 years, and we have seen considerable success. Overall statewide compliance is up in all areas of technical compliance. And we can do it cheaper than one FTE in your agency.
Want to be like Arizona?
We’d be happy to discuss with you how we can tackle a statewide solution that is cost-effective and easy to implement. Contact Ben Thomas at [email protected] or 866-301-8265.

From their web page: Fuels Market News, the magazine for retail operators, commercial fuel buyers and fuel marketers, is published by NACS, the association advancing the convenience and fuel retailing industry. Fuels Market News is the downstream petroleum industry’s trusted source for fuels-related news and information, covering the fuels of today and tomorrow.
With the help of seasoned field professionals, we hope to help Class A/B UST operators be ready for the next compliance inspection.
Here at UST Training we always strive to keep our information down to earth and practical. Look for more helpful information from us through Fuel Marketing News in the future.
Our Tank Savvy Minute videos were recently referenced in an article by Verify.com, called
According to their web page, “VERIFY is dedicated to helping the public distinguish between true and false information.

Our trained class A/B UST operators know that fuel quality is an important but subtle aspect of UST compliance. Thanks verify!

Oregon was the first state in the nation to require Class A/B UST operator training (first class taught by Ben Thomas, president of UST Training) and Oregon continues to provide great technical outreach services to their operators.
Check out this handy guide as an example of how to do things right.
What we like about it:
A major emphasis of our Oregon (and other states) Class A/B UST operator training courses also focuses on ensuring your next compliance inspection runs smoothly. Have any ideas for what makes a smooth inspection or need some help about the important topic? Contact us anytime. [email protected]
Online UST training is convenient, self-paced, and becoming the standard to accommodate our busy lives. With us issuing over a million certificates since 2007, we understand that online training makes the most sense for most UST’s operators.
But…it’s not live.
The most common advantages we hear about live training include: the value of social interaction and community building; being able to ask questions and learn about site-specific conditions; getting out of the office and away from the computer; and, if possible, going out and doing a real life field trip to a UST site.
Over the last two decades we’ve provided UST operator –as well as inspector –training in many states throughout the country, literally from Guam to the US Virgin Islands and many places in between.
So would you:
If your group or organization would prefer live training, let us know! Would be happy to give you a quote. Email us at [email protected] or call 866-301-8265
