One or Ten Thousand Operators Need Training? We Have a Solution

Since 2007, when we first launched our online Class A/B course in Colorado (webinar only) and our online Class C course (self-paced nationwide), we’ve grown to be able to offer a custom training solution to any sized UST company or organization.

Chose the account that’s best for you.

Individual. Need just one person trained? Easy. For one person, browse our course library, add Class A/B and/or C, set up your own account and get trained. Great for single person operations.

Small Group. Own a few gas stations and need Class A/Bs at some sites and Class Cs at others? With our Kiosk Training option, you can add locations or groups of users, distribute and share licenses, and track everyone’s use, progress and certifications. Great for companies who make purchases for everyone: one login and no email required for each user.

Status of our approved Class A/B courses

It’s a big job keeping up with 53 different sets of State and Territory UST regulations but that’s what we do here all day long. And while over half the UST agencies allow for training vendors, a number do not; they allow only specific training that can range from free live classes, certification exams or an online tutorial about the UST rules.

We started with Oregon back in 2003 and just got approved in the US Virgin Islands and have only 9 states to go before we offer training in all states that permit third party trainers. Stay tuned for more states coming soon.

Any need a national solution for Class A/B and C? We have ideas. Contact us anytime at 866-301-8265 or info@USTtraining.com.

Learn HOW to comply, not just WHAT to comply to

In many states, Class A/B UST operators have a number of choices when shopping for training. So why go with us and not “the other guys”?

When we first started doing online training back in 2009, we made a very intentional commitment to train UST operators the best way possible by making our content relevant, applicable and meaningful. We tried to imagine a UST operator sitting at a computer for hours listening to narrated slides, wondering:

The First O&M Manual…20 Years Ago

Did your UST training vendor pioneer the government UST compliance manual? If you trained with us, the answer is yes.

While cleaning the office last week, UST Training founder Ben Thomas came across a document he forgot he’d authored 20 years ago: The Alaska UST Operation and Maintenance Manual, dated March of 2000. Looking back, we’re pretty sure it was the first of its kind: a government authored three-ring binder that explained all the UST rules and provided a place to store all the required paperwork.

Sprucing Up Our Courses Just For You

Being unable to travel this spring to various classes and trade shows, like many of you we’ve been busy getting caught up on a number of old projects.
