Subpart 1.

Purpose and eligibility.

The purpose of the conditional certificate is to allow the current operator with direct responsibility of a system or facility time to gain necessary years of experience after passing all required examinations for the operator to achieve certification at the facility's higher class level. The operator of a system or facility that is reclassified to a higher class pursuant to part 9400.0600 shall be issued a conditional certificate in the higher class that is effective for three years from the date of issue when the following conditions are met:


the operator is a current operator with direct responsibility;


the operator has worked as the operator with direct responsibility at the same system or facility a minimum of 12 consecutive months prior to application for the conditional certificate; and


the applicant passes all exams required for the higher class in sequence (D, C, B, and A) and prior to startup of any system or facility upgrades that are related to the change in class.
