Every retail petroleum company needs to ensure their operators are trained and certified. Learn how Antea Group can be a trusted partner.

For enterprise organizations with a portfolio of retail petroleum outlets, regulatory compliance is always top-of-mind—especially when it comes to underground storage tank (UST) operations.

Back in 2005, the Energy Policy Act ushered in a new regulatory era for UST systems, with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) publishing training requirements for Class A, Class B, and Class C operators. As part of the new policy, states and U.S. territories were given the choice on how to structure and implement UST training for their operators.

Of course, this change created new challenges for retail petroleum sector, making it more difficult for companies to keep track of state-specific training requirements and ensure their operators are meeting them. But in 2010, Antea Group stepped up to help petroleum companies—as well as individual operators—fulfill these training requirements.

Originally developed with the help of the American Petroleum Institute (API), Antea Group’s UST Operator Training service offering makes it easy for you to get your operators the Class A, Class B, or Class C training they need to be safe, certified, and compliant.

What exactly do we bring to the table? Let’s dive in.

1. Unmatched experience

For more than 25 years, Antea Group has provided a range of consulting services across the oil and gas and retail petroleum industries. But our expertise is not solely rooted in our long history of service. We have more than 3,500 employees spread across 75 offices around the world—with 30 of those offices stationed throughout the United States.

As a result, we’ve leveraged the collective wisdom and expertise of our employees—as well as outside partners—to develop state-approved UST operator training courses for almost all U.S. territories and states. In addition, if we don’t offer the state-specific training your operators need, we know who does and we’ll connect you with the resources you need.

2. Personalized service

Every company has unique needs and challenges—making one-size-fits-all solutions ineffective if not impossible. Our UST Operator Training team will take the time to understand your business and training needs, and recommend actionable next steps.

3. Customized programming

All of our certified UST training offerings are available online 24/7, making it incredibly easy for your operators to complete training on their schedule. However, we can also work with you to create custom training programs.

When we build a custom training program, our state-approved courses serve as the foundation. From there we infuse standards and examples unique to your business to add relevancy and increase resonance among operators.

4. Bulk pricing and discounts

From employee turnover to mandatory retraining, UST training is an important budget consideration for any retail petroleum company. That’s why we offer bulk pricing and discounts. It’s as simple as that.
