Course Description

The foundation of our training program is an eight hour classroom-based seminar that utilizes photos and other visual aids to facilitate the efficient and comprehensive learning of the subject matter required to pass the state-mandated exam.

This Includes

  • UST Systems
  • Release Detection
  • Release Reporting and Confirmation
  • Operating Requirements
  • Record Keeping

Study Materials

We provide students with a consolidated binder of reference materials to prepare for the exam and use as an information resource in their business operations. These materials include copies of the code sections, presentation materials, reference charts, and other items.

At the end of each study section, students are given sample questions similar to those that will be asked on the exam. The intent of the practice test is to obtain an indication of the students' knowledge and to guide their outside study. In addition, students will receive multiple practice tests to assist them during their preparation for the exam.

Ask the Experts

Over fifty years of UST expertise at your fingertips. Our professionals will be available to answer any questions that may arise during students' homestudy

Safety Information

We also provide students with basic occupational safety information needed to perform on-site Designated Operator inspections and employee training.

Pass or Don't Pay

If a student does not pass the Designated Operator test on his/her first attempt, Tait will provide additional classroom training services to the student at no additional cost. If the student does not pass the test on the second attempt, Tait will provide a refund, as long as the student has participated in the additional classroom training*. 

*To be eligible, all tests must be taken within two weeks of training. Refund excludes the cost of materials.

For best results, Tait recommends students wait at least 1 week after training before taking the Designated Operator test, but no longer than 2 weeks.
