Underground storage tank operator training

The Federal Energy Policy Act of 2005 required states to develop training requirements for owners, operators and on-site employees of federally regulated underground storage tanks. Wisconsin requirements are in Wisconsin Administrative Code Chapter SPS 310. Class A, B & C Operators must be designated, trained and tested by January 1, 2012.
