Upcoming Training

UST Class A & B Test Preparation Workshops Thursday January 5 and January 26, 2023 from 9:00am to 3:00pm.


  • EPA developed class A and class B UST operator exams to primarily help UST system owners and operators in Indian country meet the 2015 federal UST regulation requirement that designated operators demonstrate knowledge.  October 13, 2018 was the deadline for designated operators to verify compliance with the requirement to pass an exam. To be in compliance a tribal gas station manager must hold a Class A certification.  Testing certificates/certification must be kept on file for federal compliance purposes.
  • Class A operator is the person who has the primary responsibility to operate and maintain the UST system according to the UST regulations.  Class A operator exam tests general knowledge of the UST regulations.
  • Class B operator is the person who has day-to-day responsibility for implementing the UST regulations.  Class B operator exam tests a more in-depth understanding of the operation and maintenance aspects of UST systems.
