Antea Group’s Connecticut Class A/B UST operator training course is available on-demand, making it easy for you to complete anytime and anywhere. The course is self-paced, allowing you to stop and start as many times as you wish.
Depending on the user, the training typically takes approximately five hours to complete. In addition, your course purchase comes with a 150-page handbook that can be downloaded and used for the 75-question, open-book exam following the training, as well as an on-the-job reference material.
UST Training Requirements for Connecticut
DEEP requires the training and certification of all Class A and Class B operators. They also require operators to undergo refresher training at least every two years following the initial training. Retraining is also required when non-compliance is found. Antea Group’s combined Class A/B course satisfies requirements for both classes of operators.
In addition, DEEP requires the training of all Class C operators. Class C operators can be certified through a state-approved third-party training course, or they can be certified by a trained Class A or Class B operator. Class C operators also need refresher training every two years.

Reciprocity & Additional Information
Connecticut does not accept operator training certification for individuals trained out-of-state. Because of this, UST operators certified outside of Connecticut must be retrained and certified.
Furthermore, all training information must be submitted to DEEP on the appropriate UST Notification Form (i.e. DEEP-UST-NOT-001). This form can be submitted electronically at https://filings.deep.ct.gov/. Failure to comply with training requirements may result in enforcement action, which may include Red Tagging (shutting down) the facility until it’s in compliance.
