EPA Lead Renovator Certification Initial Course

EPA-Accredited Lead Renovator Certification Course

If you are a contractor or property manager, enrolling in lead certification courses is a crucial step in protecting your clients, your firm, your workers, and yourself. Becoming certified follows the Environmental Protection Agency’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule, which states that if you are paid to perform renovation, repair, or painting work in houses built before 1978, you must be trained to do so.

This rule is aimed towards the use of safe practices and other actions meant to prevent lead poisoning. As lead can be found in dust, paint, water, and soil in or surrounding a house, it is a contractor’s job to become educated on the proper renovation techniques along with necessary precautions to take if lead-based paint is found in the building. Children are most at risk for lead poisoning, so safeguarding the areas they frequent, like housing, schools, and day care centers, is important as well.

Whether you are in charge of any contracting company, partnership, corporation, or sole proprietorship, or you work on your own, lead renovator training is an important part of keeping your business afloat. In fact, performing work on any sort of property where there is lead when you don’t have this certification could result in fines of up to $37,500 per day per infraction.

In order to become certified, you must take a lead renovator certification initial course. For those who have already gone through the lead renovator training once, renovator model refresher training is necessary to renew this certification. To conduct testing for renovation projects that required lead dust clearance to be performed, you must take a lead dust sampling technician model initial certification course. For those who have already been certified once, lead dust sampling technician model refresher training is necessary to renew this certification. All four courses are available as in-person classes, or you can choose to get your EPA lead renovator refresher certification online for added convenience. In-person training certifies you for five years; gaining your EPA lead renovator refresher certification online, however, will provide you with valid certification for three years.

The main standard for all lead renovator training courses is a federally-based program, but 14 specific states have their own qualifications. No matter which options you choose, becoming lead-safe certified will set you apart and ensure proper lead safety for everyone involved.

Where is lead paint found and why does it matter?

It is estimated that lead paint was used in more than 38 million residential properties built prior 1978. Lead paint can form toxic dust when it is disturbed during normal home repair activity. The EPA Lead RRP Rule is an effort to protect the public from lead poisoning, especially children under the age of six, associated with renovation, repair and painting activities. These types of activities can create hazardous lead dust when surfaces with lead paint and coated surfaces are disturbed. The RRP Rule requires workers to receive lead certification training to become lead certified renovators.

What are the EPA certification requirements?

Contractors are required to assign at least one lead certified renovator to each lead renovation project. Lead renovators are certified upon completion of an EPA accredited renovator lead training course. The initial EPA lead certification training is 8 hours in length, and the lead certification is good for 5 years from the date of lead certification course completion. State authorized lead certification programs may vary. To maintain their lead certification a certified renovator must complete a refresher lead certification training course prior to the expiration of their current lead certification. Note: The 4 hour refresher lead certification training course or the 8 hour initial lead certification training course can be used to recertify. If their lead certification expires, then the 8 hour lead certification training course must be taken again to regain their lead certification.

Do I have to take a Lead Renovator Certification Initial Course if I am a Lead Abatement Worker or Lead Abatement Supervisor?

Yes, if you are doing work that is covered under the EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule. However, individuals who have successfully completed an accredited abatement worker or supervisor course may take an accredited lead renovator certification refresher training course in lieu of the lead renovator certification initial training course to become a certified renovator.

How can a firm comply with the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Program?

A firm that would like to become lead certified to perform lead renovation, repair and painting activity must submit an application to the EPA. In addition, the firm must attest that it will assign at least one lead certified renovator to each project who has been lead trained by attending an EPA-approved lead certification class, use only individuals who are either lead certified or have received appropriate lead training to perform lead renovation, and follow all lead RRP Rule requirements.
