UST Program - Leak Prevention - Frequently Asked Question #10

Question: How does the UST inspector certification requirement apply to new inspectors?

Answer: New UST inspectors, including current Unified Program Agency (UPA) employees who are new to the UST program, have 180 days from the date of hire (or transfer to the UST program) to obtain their certificate. This should allow each UPA enough time to provide adequate training for newly hired UST inspectors.  During the first 180 days of employment, we recommend that new inspectors accompany experienced staff on field inspections as part of their training.  Inspection reports may be prepared by the new inspector, but should be reviewed and signed by an inspector with a current International Code Council (ICC) California UST Inspector certificate.
