Operator Training


This section requires the development of training guidelines for those who operate and maintain federally-regulated underground storage tank systems (Section 1524 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005).  EPA, the states, and other states worked closely together to develop the operator training grant guidelines.  These guidelines define three distinct classes of UST operators, describe the how and when the guidelines will be implemented within the states, and provide operator training deadlines.  If you would like to view the Final Operator Training Grant Guidelines, click on the following link:
