The Nation's underground storage tank (UST) systems consist of underground tanks and piping that store petroleum and other hazardous materials. This course, Underground Storage Tanks, addresses the procedures to install, operate, and remove USTs.

Developed specifically for maintenance personnel, this course provides participants with an understanding of the Federal laws and regulations that govern UST systems. During the course, participants acquire the knowledge needed to successfully oversee UST installations and closures. Specifically, the course explores the requirements of industry installation and closure codes, leakage detection, spill and overfill prevention, corrosion protection, and ensuring a "clean" closure.

This training was developed as part of the Maintenance Training Series. To access all the trainings in the series, enroll in the 134109 course.


Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the regulatory framework governing the operation of underground storage tanks
  • Describe UST operations
  • Describe the process that must be followed to obtain satisfactory "clean closure" from the appropriate oversight agency
  • Describe UST cleanup and removal operations


This course is designed for State, regional, and county personnel who manage operations programs and deal with oversight and quality assurance across broad geographic areas. This target audience also is involved with handling materials, scheduling, budgeting, and planning.
