Underground Injection Control (UIC)

UIC Online Interactive Training

On this page:

UIC National Training Initiative

The national Underground Injection Control (UIC) program is developing a series of online interactive technical training modules designed to ensure efficient transfer of knowledge on various aspects of the UIC program. The modules will help improve effectiveness and provide consistent and transparent program implementation across federal, state, and tribal UIC programs.   

The modules are intended for UIC permit writers, program managers, and inspectors from federal, state, territory, and tribal UIC programs. The modules cover, UIC basics; permitting; inspection and enforcement; construction and operation; and several technical “special” topic areas. Some UIC modules may be used to satisfy supplemental training requirements for National UIC Inspector Training certification.
