Able Safety Consulting - 8 Hour EPA RRP Lead Safe Certified Renovator Initial (Blended)



EPA Lead Certification

Blended learning is a mix of online and in-person training.  The EPA requires the RRP Lead Renovator Initial Course to contain a hands-on training component, therefore the majority of the class may be done online (6 Hours) but participants will still be required to attend a small portion in-person to participate in the hands-on activities(2 Hours).

 

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 Paint 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. There is no need for EPA lead certification lookup, cause you already find everything you need to know.

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 certification test online or in-person and obtained a certificate. 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 Lead Certification Application For Firm to become a lead safe certified firm. 

 

Local Law 31 - NYC Lead Training Requirement

Home improvement contractors in New York City are now required to provide proof of EPA certification (also known as lead abatement certification) to apply or re-apply for their NYC home improvement contractors license if they disturb painted surfaces in houses, apartments, or child-occupied facilities (such as schools) built before 1978. 

 

Already an EPA RRP Lead-Safe Certified Renovator?

EPA lead safe certification is valid for 5 years. If you are already a certified renovator and your certification  has not yet expired you are eligible to take a  4 hour refresher course entirely online.  ablesafety.com offers a quick and convenient way to renew your lead certificate entirely online at very little cost to you. If your certificate has already expired you are no longer eligible to take the refresher course and must re-take the 8-hour initial lead certification course again.
