Course Description

Learn how to safely and effectively perform lead-safe work practices in compliance with the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule and the HUD Lead Safe Housing Rule. This eight-hour course includes hands-on activities and a certification exam. EPA Certified Renovator status will allow you to perform lead-safe renovation, repair and painting work in pre-1978 housing and in child-occupied facilities where work will disturb lead-based paint. Certification is valid for five years from the date of course completion.

To maintain certification, you must successfully complete an EPA-accredited Certified Renovator refresher course before your initial certification expires and then again every five years. Otherwise, you will need to retake this initial course to become recertified.
