Kentucky Class A/B/C UST Operator Course

This course will fulfill your Class A/B/C UST Operator Certification requirement and is approved by the Kentucky Energy & Environment Cabinet

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 8 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.
