Utah UST Operator Training Rules

Status:          
Rules Adopted.

Basics:         
Utah DEQ adopted operator training rules similar to Federal EPA guidelines with a few exceptions such as a 01/01/2012 deadline. Other differences include:

  • Class B operator does routine daily aspects of operation, maintenance, and record keeping for UST systems.
  • The Class B operator is an owner, employee, or contractor working for the UST owner or operator. Some of the duties of the Class B operator are:

– Ensure that an on-site operator inspection of each facility is performed every 30 days.
– Ensure that the UST system is monitored every seven days for leak detection alarms, etc.
– Be present for DEQ compliance inspections, or designate another individual to attend.

Class A/B:
We offer Utah Class A/B training through a referral program with Tait Environmental Services. Utah UST operators must then take and pass a DEQ-sponsored final exam.

Class C:        
Our Utah Class C online course is available and considered acceptable in Utah.
