Alabama Online Class A/B UST Operator Course

This course will fulfill your Class A/B training requirement and is approved by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM) updated their UST regulations to incorporate the revised 2015 Federal UST requirements with an effective date of December 7, 2017. Petro Classroom’s Class A/B/C course reflects these updates and includes compliance deadlines for the major provisions.

Petro Classroom designed this Class A/B Operator training to provide Class A/B Operators with an easy-to-use online training course that can be completed anytime, anywhere, in approximately 4 hours. There are 7 chapters that can be completed at your own pace. You can start, stop and return to the course as your schedule permits.

No final exam! At Petro Classroom, we understand how difficult it can be to try and retain 4 hours of information and then take a huge final exam. The Petro Classroom Class A/B Operator training is designed with mini quizzes throughout each chapter, so you learn a little and then take a quiz on the information you just learned. This format makes it easier to retain the information and successfully pass the quizzes. You must pass all the quizzes in each chapter with an 80% before moving on to the next chapter. If you fail a quiz, you can review the chapter and take the quiz again.

Additionally, this course includes breakout sections for Operators of Generator USTs.
