The EPA Lead Renovator Certification Course is ideal for conformity with the EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule. The rule that came into effect on April 22 2010, is that anyone who conducts renovation, repair, or painting work in pre-1978 housing or child-occupied requires this certification. Individual persons and companies that do not have the EPA Lead Renovator Certification may face penalties of up to $37,500 per day.
What is the EPA Lead Renovator Refresher Course?
This 4 hour course is to modify your lead-safe training program. It is intended to prompt building contractors regarding working on their projects, in a secure way. Program topics come with overview of the policies, containment, cleaning practices and recordkeeping.
Every Renovator Should Be Aware:
Needless to say renovator certifications expire every five years. Whenever the re-certification training is completed hands-on, the renovator will be certified for five years from the date of course completion. When completing the online refresher course, the renovator is certified for three years. Make sure that in the case you renew your refresher course online, before the date it expires three years from then, re-certifying yourself must be done with hands-on training. Do not delay: should you not get the 4-hour refresher training before the expiration, you will be required to retake the 8-hour basic course to be certified, once again.
EPA requires that everyone acquire certain sections of the EPA-approved guaranteed renovator refresher course (along with the initial certification) in person, considering the “hands-on” activities which are essential element of the training. EPA already took out the current hands on training requirements for the refresher course and is providing distance learning.
