    EPA RRP Certified Renovator Course

    On April 22, 2010 the EPA passed the renovation, repair and painting (RRP) rule which requires individuals performing renovation, repair, and painting activities on homes or child occupied facilities built prior to 1978 to obtain an EPA Lead Certification. Lead certificates are received by completing an 8 hour Lead Renovator Certification course instructed by an EPA authorized training provider. Individuals who do not become certified may face fines of up to $37,500 per day.

    The EPA RRP Course is designed to instruct individuals on the health effects of lead-based paint, how to test for lead-based paint, how to work using lead-safe work practices if lead is present, and how to educate your customer on the hazards of lead based paint.

    Any contractor disturbing more than 6 square ft. of space in pre-1978 housing or child occupied facility must employ at least one certified renovator who has successfully completed the EPA RRP Training Course. If you are the owner of a company, you or a principle of the company must complete the EPA RRP Training Certification course. After completing the course successfully and receiving a lead-safe certified renovator certification the employees of the company may work under your lead certification. Companies must also submit an EPA Firm Application to become a lead safe certified firm. 

    EPA RRP Lead Certification Course Online

    The EPA requires the RRP Lead Renovator Initial Course to contain a hands-on training aspect, which means that the majority of the class may be done online (6 Hours) but participants will still be required to attend the class in person in order to participate in the hands-on activities portion. Able Safety is currently working on designing a new partial online EPA RRP Certified Renovator course that will work using the same "Learning Management System" that is currently in use on the EPA RRP Refresher Course Online.

      I attended your class to become EPA certified and i found it very helpful and very knowledgeable. I was afraid it was going to be a boring class but I am so happy I attended it. Not only did it teach me on the requirement but i also learned other business type lessons and networked with others. I will definitely recommend your class to others and i will be in contact to take other classes that you offer as well as this one.
