Rules adopted in 2015.
Tank owners and operators of existing facilities subject to the operator training requirements had to designate their authorized Class A, Class B, and Class C Operators by October 11, 2016. Facility owners or their authorized representatives had to identify the Class A and Class B Operators on their registration application forms and submit them to DEC (postmarked) no later than October 11, 2016. An operator or tank system owner may designate multiple Class A and/or Class B Operators but the facility owner or their authorized representative will only designate a single Class A and single Class B Operator on the facility registration/license (the “primary” operators). If the primary operators change, the facility owner/designee must update the information with DEC.
NY requires all Class A/B operators take and pass a mandatory exam of minimum competency. However, NY DEC also allows certification from certain other states by reciprocity. Learn more here. Here is a study guide for NY Class A/B operators to prepare for the exam.
Our New York Class C online course is available and considered acceptable in New York.
See the New York DEC UST Tank Bulletin web page for more information.
