This one day course will consist of the 8 Hour Certification training based on the EPA Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair and Painting.
For individuals seeking new individual Certified Renovator certifications under EPA Renovate, Repair and Painting (RRP) regulation, or if their initial certification has been expired for more than one year, 8-Hour Initial training is required.
The traditional renovation work you do now can create significant lead-dust hazards if lead-based paint is present and disturbed.
The leaded dust generated by traditional renovation work can cause lead poisoning in children. It can also poison pregnant women, yourself, your children, other workers and even pets. Practical changes in work practices can minimize and contain dust. The use of lead-safe work practices makes the job safer and reduces your liability exposure.
EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting Final Rule (40 CFR 745) regulations now require that renovations conducted for compensation, must be performed by Certified Firms using Certified Renovators. Renovation firms that wish to work in pre-1978 homes and child-occupied facilities must apply to EPA and pay a fee in order to become certified. Renovators seeking to become Certified Renovators must successfully complete a EPA-accredited renovator course. This course is the EPA model course for Certified Renovators and has been enhanced and approved to meet all requirements for RRP certification.
This course will teach you how to comply with the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting Rules and the HUD Lead Safe Housing Rule, and how to perform lead-safe work practices safely and effectively.
