About This Course:
States are busy changing underground storage tank (UST) rules to meet the new federal EPA requirements that went into effect a year ago.

If you have a secondarily contained UST system, you may be facing additional inspecting, testing and monitoring requirements.

Over the next two years, tank systems must come into compliance with the new regulations – so it’s essential that you know what you need to do for your UST system and when.

  • Why the EPA made revisions

  • The must-know compliance deadlines
  • Critical compliance details on secondary containment principles and technologies
  • Tricks to correcting common problems
  • Tips about preparing for the deadline

Ben Thomas

Ben Thomas brings the UST industry over 28 years of experience, networking and ideas to help owners and inspectors solve complex technical problems in the management of underground storage tank systems. His experience goes back to 1986, when he supervised UST removals in Vermont. Between 1989 and 1995, he oversaw cleanup of leaking UST sites in northern Alaska. From 1995 to 2002, he ran Alaska’s UST leak prevention program. He gained national attention for his innovative work in web page development, outreach material, financial responsibility compliance, and most notably the Alaska third party inspection program. Since leaving Alaska in 2002, his principal focus has been education, training, and outreach to the nation’s UST owners, operators, inspectors and technicians.

Mr. Thomas led the nation’s first state-approved Class A/B operator class in Oregon in 2003 and has been training nonstop ever since. From Guam to Puerto Rico and many points in between, he continues to look for new ways to make his UST classes interesting, relevant and sometimes fun. Currently, he manages, an online training school for Class A, B and C operators. Between his live, webinar and online classes, he’s trained more UST operators than any one person in the US. He also offered free information to UST operators and inspectors with his popular YouTube series. His mission is to help protect the nation’s drinking water supplies one tank at a time.
