The Texas Class C UST Operator Training is designed to provide general, emergency-response training to personnel who work at underground storage tank (UST) facilities. Online Class C training, such as this course, if deemed acceptable to the facility Class B Operator, is a TCEQ-approved method of training. Facility-specific training, provided by the Class B Operator, is also required to complete the training. Upon completion of this training, the Class C Operator will receive a certificate of completion. The certificate must be signed by the Class C Operator and the Class A or B Operator must also sign the certificate confirming that facility-specific training has also been completed.

The Class C Operator is a person routinely working at a UST facility, such as a gas station attendant, who is also responsible for the immediate response to a problem at an UST facility.  This individual is responsible for responding to alarms or other indications of emergencies caused by spills or releases from UST systems. This individual notifies the Class B or Class A Operator and appropriate emergency responders when necessary.  During hours of operation, at least one certified Class A, B or C UST Operator must be present at the facility. 

Class C operator training must cover how to respond to an alarm or emergency.  This individual typically and at a minimum must be trained to take action as the initial response to emergencies such as:

  • Situations posing an immediate danger or threat to the public or to the environment and that require immediate action.
  • Alarms caused by spills or releases from a UST system.
