The course is self-paced, allowing you to stop and start as many times as needed.

Class C operators must be trained before reporting to duty. Retraining is required for Class C operators every two years.
Reciprocity & Additional Resources
Rhode Island accepts Class A/B operator certification from any New England State for a maximum of one year once per facility. Once the certification is no longer valid, operators must take an operator training course from a vendor approved by RIDEM (and includes Antea Group’s training course).
