Tank School is a training opportunity originally developed and taught in-person; however, in 2020, Tank School moved to a virtual setting. TN Tank School is designed to help increase the tank owners and/or operators understanding of regulatory compliance with the underground storage tank rules, preparation for future compliance inspections and any upcoming new regulatory requirements. The class covers UST systems equipment, operations, testing requirements, recordkeeping and reporting requirements and specific topics to the TN UST Program. Attending the class can be voluntary, or a requirement to address operational compliance enforcement action. All attendees who complete the entire class receive a Certificate of Attendance. Any attendee who scores a 70 or higher on the class final exam will be awarded a UST Class A and Class B Operator certificate.
The virtual class includes:
- Complete class registration using a registration link in the table below. Registration must be completed 1-week prior to the class date. If registration has closed, please register for the next class.
- Completion of a Pre-Test using a provided survey monkey link. The Pre-test must be completed prior to the Friday before the class date. If the class Pre-Test has not been completed on time you will be removed from the current roster and you must register for the next available class.
- A full day of live class presentation (in class discussions and questions are encouraged)
- A final Post-Test given after the presentation with a provided survey monkey link.
If you are taking tank school to meet retraining requirements from a compliance inspection, failure to complete these four components of the class in the timeline required could lead to future enforcement action.
