What is the Texas UST Training Program?
The environmental, health, and safety hazards of a leaking underground storage tank (UST) cannot be overstated. To prevent accidents and promote awareness, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) requires UST system owners and operators to undergo compliance training.
360training.com, in collaboration with the Texas Petroleum Marketers and Convenience Store Association (TPCA), offers a Class A and Class B UST Facility Operator Training Course to help you comply with state and federal regulations.
Who Should Take the Texas UST Operator Training Course?
