Illinois UST Operator Recertification


Choose Classroom Location / Date

     The Illinois Office of the State Fire Marshal (OSFM) requires retraining of UST operators every two years as spelled out in Section 176.620.   If you took your training by the original due date of August 8, 2012, your certification expires this August 8, 2014.  To minimize the impact of having to take the training again, we are offering substantial discounts if you order today.

Here's a video that provides a demo of our online video-based training:


This online course is designed to train and certify Illinois Class A and B Underground Storage Tank Operators. These self-paced courses allow the student to start and pause the training during its delivery. The course must be completed within 6 months of its start. The courses utilize visual aids and audio commentary to facilitate the efficient and comprehensive learning of the subject matter required to meet Illinois regulations for an UST Class A or B Operator. During or at the end of the training (depending on the state), a quiz/exam will be administered. These training courses have been approved by the state regulators, as a means for gaining Class A and B Operator Certification. The training also satisfies the requirements for C operator certification for those operators who will perform the responsibilities for all UST operators.

Topics Covered

The following topics are covered in this course:

  • Class A, B and C Operator roles and responsibilities
  • Overview of UST systems
  • UST operator requirements
  • Release detection
  • Record keeping
  • Release reporting, confirmation, and corrective action

Learning Objectives

The overall objective is to educate the prospective Class A or B operator on the Illinois and USEPA Federal Regulations governing the operation of underground storage tanks. The course will prepare students to take our online Class A or B UST Operator Certification Exam.

Seat Time

There are approximately 2-3 hours of video. The time to take the course depends on the number of times a student may review the material and answer the questions.


Students are required to pass the quizzes/exams answering a minimum of number of the questions correctly. This varies by state but is generally a 75-85% pass rate.

Course Completion

Upon completion of the courses that include the exams/quizzes, a Class A and B UST Operator Certificate can be downloaded and printed. If the state requires a separate exam, that must be completed prior to receiving your certification.


None. Gather your Facility ID#s and any other information required by the state for your certification.
