Class VI Regulator Training Curriculum – As Presented at GWPC Annual Forum 2022

This document presents a curriculum for the training of regulatory staff who will review and approve Class VI permit applications and monitor Class VI projects. It is intended to provide regulators with information about the underground injection of carbon dioxide (CO2) for long-term storage. The curriculum focuses on areas of regulatory management of CO2 injection and storage that are not typically part of existing underground injection control programs. Note that the training envisioned by the curriculum is not designed to qualify someone to fully review a Class VI project or permit application or to regulate Class VI operations where in-depth training in specific areas of expertise is needed. In addition, the curriculum is intended to supplement, and not duplicate training prepared and in preparation by EPA.
