Course Description

This course provides the Class C UST Operator the training needed to know how to respond to emergency conditions at underground storage tank (UST) facilities.  The Class C operator is an employee and is, generally, the first line of response to events indicating emergency conditions. This individual is responsible for responding to alarms or other indications of emergencies caused by spills or releases from underground storage tank systems. This individual notifies the Class B or Class A operator and appropriate emergency responders when necessary. Not all employees of the facility are necessarily Class C operators.

This Class C operator individual typically: 

  • Controls or monitors the dispensing or sale of regulated substances, or
  • Is responsible for initial response to alarms or releases.

Our Class C Operator Course and Certification provides training on the following: 

  • Introduction to a generic UST facility including the major fuel system components and emergency equipment
  • The roles and responsibilities of the Class A, B and C Operators.
  • Site-specific emergency procedures development
  • Emergency contact procedures
  • Safety awareness for employees and customers
  • Overfill prevention

  • Alarm panel recognition and response procedures
  • Fuel spill containment and cleanup

At the end of the course, a 10 question exam is administered and you will be required to answer 8 out of 10 questions correctly to be certified.  When you pass the exam, you will be presented with a certificate documenting your training.
