The 8-hour EPA Lead Certification training course is the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP), which is a one-day program that provides fundamental lead-based paint information to contractors who carry out renovations, repairs, and painting activities in buildings constructed before 1978.
Who is affected by the EPA Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) law?
Remodelers, door installers, window installers, insulation contractors, painters, plumbers, electricians, siding contractors, and others working in pre-1978 housing where there’s a risk that lead-based paint will be disturbed, or lead-based paint dust may be produced.
Who is required to become a Certified Lead Renovator?
The project manager, owner, superintendent, crew leader or anyone else that is on site. To remain in compliance with the law, the certificate holder is required to have their certificate on hand and be available by phone at all times.
When will the Lead Paint Renovator certification expire?
The training certification is valid for 5 years. Successfully completing a refresher course provides each individual with another 5 year extension. WARNING: In the event that your initial certificate expires, the EPA states that you will be responsible for re-taking the 8 hour initial training course. They also suggest that you complete the course at least 90 days ahead of the expiration date, since allowing time for the process is essential.
