Kentucky UST Operator Training
The UST Branch will contact you when it is time for your Tank Operator Online Training System (TOOLS) Training. At that time, you will be issued a personal identification number (PIN) needed to access the training.
Per federal law, states are to ensure that UST operators are trained according to state-specific requirement. In Kentucky, online training will be offered through TOOLS to designated compliance managers, also known as a Designated Compliance Managers (DCMs) or Combined Class A/Class B operator.
Links to the federal legislation and EPA guidance to states for the development of UST operator training can be found on U.S. EPA's operator training web page. Kentucky UST operator training regulatory requirements are in Section 16 of 401 KAR 42:020.
