Whether you are becoming certified for the first time or just need to recertify, you will get the regulatory information you need to stay current with New Jersey's UST requirements and help your clients or employer avoid potential penalty liability.
Please Note: The NJ Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) regulates Underground Storage Tanks (USTs) and requires the professionals who work on them to be trained, certified/recertified every three (3) years. When a person has notified the NJDEP of a discharge from an UST on or after November 4, 2009, that person must retain a LSRP when addressing regulated USTs. LSRPs may work on unregulated USTs (remediation or otherwise), but LSRPs are not required to be hired to remediate discharges from unregulated USTs. Certified Subsurface Evaluators may still be retained to remediate discharges from unregulated USTs without the supervision of a LSRP. The certifications for all other categories of UST services (i.e., installation, closure, tank testing, and corrosion protection) still require the refresher course. The person responsible for conducting the remediation of a discharge from an unregulated UST who uses a Certified Subsurface Evaluator to remediate that discharge is required to employ an individual working for a business firm certified in the category of UST subsurface evaluation pursuant to the UST rules at N.J.A.C. 7:14B-16.
