Become Lead-Safe Certified
Welcome to our Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) course. This course was developed to train inspectors and contractors how to work safely in housing with lead-based paint and comply with EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule and HUD’s Lead Safe Housing Rule.
Federal Law and EPA RRP Lead Safety Training Courses
Federal law requires renovation firms (including sole proprietorships) to be certified and requires individuals to be trained in the use of lead-safe work practices. To become certified, renovation contractors must submit an application and fee payment to EPA or to the state if you work in one of the states authorized to run their own RRP programs. Individuals wishing to become certified renovators must take training from an EPA-accredited training provider.
In addition, renovation firms must be certified by EPA or by a state authorized by EPA to administer its own program. Firm certification is easy. Firms need to send in a two-page application to EPA and pay a fee of $300 to the EPA. EPA certification is good for 5 years.
Federal law mandates that all contractors and maintenance workers (from plumbers to electricians to painters to handymen), performing renovation, repair, and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in any pre-1978 homes, buildings, child care facilities and schools be certified by EPA. Firms are required to use Lead-Safe Certified Renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices.
