New Hampshire ICC Class A/B Operator Preparation Course
Petro Classroom has designed an online preparation course to teach Class A/B Operators everything they need to know to pass the International Code Council Course Exams as required by the New Hampshire Department of Environmental Services (DES).
NOTE: New Hampshire DES also offers a Class A/B Operator Certification class. Operators who have current certification with the International Code Council as an underground storage facility operator or underground storage facility system installer or retrofitter can also be considered Class A and B operators, respectively.
This course content not only meets, but exceeds the Federal Environmental Protection Agency and each state’s environmental agency requirements for the Class A/B training. Petro Classroom takes great pride in providing operators with the most up-to-date information regarding federal and state regulations. Please note, that as each state’s regulatory agency adopts the 2015 revised UST regulations, Petro Classroom has been and will be updating the training content accordingly.
Additionally, this course includes breakout sections for Operators of Generator USTs.
Class A and B Operators must complete the following 9 chapters in order to obtain their Class A/B Certificate of Completion:
