The NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) regulates individuals who perform services on Underground Storage Tanks (USTs). This program satisfies the NJDEP regulatory requirement for certified individuals to complete UST recertification training every three years within the 12 months prior to renewal. This course is also approved for 5.5 hours of regulatory CECs for Licensed Site Remediation Professionals (LSRP).  Certified individuals are reminded they are also responsible staying current with OSHA CFR 1919.120 HazWoper Training.
If you work on USTs, you need this course! Over the past several years the NJDEP has made significant changes to the Site Remediation Program, most notably the Licensed Site Remediation Professional Program. The Department has revised the UST Rules, issued new Technical Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites and published numerous guidance documents which impact the both the regulated and the unregulated UST industry.
In concert with the above changes, the Department created a yet to be published regulation specific to addressing unregulated heating oil tank (UHOT) releases. This UST recertification seminar program content includes special emphasis on the requirements for remediation of UHOTs including best practices developed to comply with its provisions,
NJAC 7:14B, New Jersey’s regulated UST rules was revised and published May 2015 and is scheduled for adoption. The EPA promulgated updated UST rules In July 2015. There were many differences between the two rules, but one thing is certain; both operator training requirements and the periodic facility inspection and maintenance requirements are part of both the proposal and the EPA rule. This seminar will feature a review of both rules and a discussion of the impact regulated facility owners can expect.
This course will be facilitated by FMA Special Projects Coordinator John Donohue and features presentations by Phil Brilliant, Brilliant Environmental and a member of the LSRP Licensing Board, Mark Gruzlovich, Supervising Environmental Specialist Unregulated Heating Oil Tank Program (UHOT). Mr. Mike Hollis of NJDEP Regulated Tank Facility Compliance and Enforcement program is scheduled to present.
While this course will satisfy the continuing education requirement for UST recertification, FMA encourages all members to attend this informative program on the significant NJDEP changes that affect all of your customers who have USTs.
Any cancellations must be made three (3) business days prior to seminar for a refund to be issued.
