EPA Lead Certification

On April 22nd 2010, the EPA created the renovation, repair and painting rule. This rule requires any individuals performing renovation, repair and painting activities on homes built prior to 1978 to obtain a lead certification by completing the EPA RRP Lead Safe Certified Renovator Training Course. This training course provides renovators with the information needed to work using lead safe work practices on homes where lead is known or expected to be present. The course will also cover the health hazards of lead and how to protect yourself, your clients and your own family from the dangers of lead based paint.

EPA Extension On RRP Renewal

Renovators who received their certification between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011, had one year added to their 5-year RRP Lead certification. Since a large number of renovators received their initial certificate during this time, there is a good chance that you must become re-certified between April 1, 2016 and March 31st, 2017.

If you have not scheduled a lead safe certification renewal course yet, there is no need to worry. By The EPA recently removing the hands-on requirement on the EPA RRP refresher, it can now be renewed entirely online by following a few simple steps.

 

What if My Certification Has Already Expired?

An EPA RRP certification is obtained by completing an 8-Hour initial lead safety course. Initial lead certifications expire in 5 years. In order to remain compliant renovators must take a 4-Hour RRP Refresher course to renew their Certification. If your 5 year lead certification has already expired you are no longer eligible to complete the 4-hr RRP Refresher online and must re-take the initial 8-hr in-person training again.
