All underground storage tank owners are required to have trained Primary and Emergency Response Operators. Tank owners must designate a primary operator for each facility.
The 2005 Federal Energy Policy Act mandates training for all UST system operators. NC operator training requirements are located in NC General Statute 143-215.94 [NN through TT] The primary operator is responsible for day-to-day operation, maintenance, and record-keeping, and needs to have a general knowledge of UST compliance requirements. For more information refer to the UST Operator Training Requirements.
Two types of operators must receive training:
1. Primary Operator (also called Class A/B), and
2. Emergency Response Operator (also called Class C).
Training for Primary Operators can be conducted at a UST facility during an inspection if the facility is in compliance. Otherwise, training at Tank School or online training is required.
