UST Training Requirements for District of Columbia
The DDOE UST Program training guidelines closely mirror the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) grant guidelines and requires the training and examination of all Class A and Class B operators. Training must be completed through a department-approved third-party provider. Class A/B operators must be retrained and recertified every five years from the date on their certificate. Antea Group’s combined Class A/B operator training course for Maryland is accepted reciprocally by the District of Columbia for both classes.
In addition, DDOE requires the training of all Class C operators. Class C operators may be trained by the Class A or Class B operator, or take an approved training program provided by a third-party vendor. After the initial training, Class C operators are required to be briefed on new procedures or instructions every 12 months at a minimum.
Reciprocity & Additional Resources
DDOE may recognize certifications from other approved courses that follow federal requirements and are approved by the EPA. As previously mentioned, Antea Group’s Maryland training is approved by the District of Columbia.
