Certified Class A and Class B Operators must be re-trained within three years of their last training date. Certified Class C operators must be re-trained within three years of their last training date.
If an underground storage tank (UST) facility receives a notice of violation and the agency determines that the UST facility is in significant noncompliance, the designated Class B operators for that UST facility, must attend either a Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) approved compliance class that addresses the noted noncompliant areas or an acceptable operator training course as specified in §334.603 of this title, within the time frame specified by the TCEQ for that violation.
As a result of the retraining of Class A operators or Class B operators, subsequent re-training of the Class C operators shall also occur.
