Maryland UST Operator Training
Our Certified UST Training Offerings
The Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), Oil Control Program has approved Antea Group’s Class A/B and Class C underground storage tank (UST) operator training courses. After passing the course, you’ll receive a certificate that can be downloaded and printed for your records.
All courses will expire and must be completed within 90 days of purchase.
Antea Group’s Maryland 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 comprehensive 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.
Antea Group’s Maryland Class C UST training course is available on-demand, and can be taken anytime and anywhere for your convenience. The course is self-paced, allowing you to stop and start as many times as needed. The training takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. As with most states, Class C training is facility-specific, so certification is only valid after signature approval by the Class A or Class B operator following a review of the UST system for your facility.
UST Training Requirements for Maryland
MDE’s Class A and Class B training requirements closely follow the state’s UST regulations and Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) grant guidelines. Operators are required to be trained and certified through an MDE-approved training program, but there are no retraining requirements. Antea Group’s combined Class A/B course meets requirements for both classes
For Class C operators, they may be trained through an MDE-approved course or through the Class A or Class B operator on-site. Retraining is not required, but annual refresher training is recommended.
Reciprocity & Additional Resources
The MDE may allow Class A or Class B operator certification from another state to satisfy the UST operator training requirements. Individuals seeking reciprocity must demonstrate that their training meets Maryland requirements and regulations. Operators should contact the MDE for more information:
