Description

If You Work on USTs, You Need This Course!

Whether you are becoming certified for the first time or just need to recertify, you will get the regulatory information you need to stay current with New Jersey's UST requirements and help your clients or employer avoid potential penalty liability.

Please Note: The NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) regulates Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) and requires the professionals who work on them to be trained, certified/recertified every three (3) years. When a person has notified the NJDEP of a discharge from a regulated UST on or after November 4, 2009, that person must retain a LSRP. LSRPs may work on unregulated heating oil USTs (remediation), but LSRPs are not required to be hired to remediate discharges from unregulated heating oil USTs. Certified Subsurface Evaluators may still be retained to remediate discharges from unregulated heating oil USTs without the supervision of a LSRP. The person responsible for conducting the remediation of a discharge from an unregulated heating oil UST must make sure that the Certified Subsurface Evaluator hired is employed by a firm that is also certified in the category of UST subsurface evaluation pursuant to the UST rules at N.J.A.C. 7:14B-16. The certifications for all other categories of UST services (i.e., installation, closure, tank testing, and corrosion protection) still require the refresher course.

Who Should Attend?

Anyone working on USTs needs a good understanding of the applicable regulations and guidance, especially tank owners, consultants, engineers, contractors, health officers, geologists, soil scientists and attorneys. If you are renewing your certification, you must take a NJDEP-certified course within one year prior to renewal. Professional engineers and plumbing contractors, exempt from the certification examination, must attend the course within one year of certification.
