What is Renovator Initial Certification Course – Lead Safety Training?
EPA Lead Certification – This renovator initial course was developed by the U.S. Environmental protection agency, together with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to train renovation, repair, and painting contractors how to work safely and securely in housing with lead-based paint and comply with EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule, and HUD’s Lead Safe Housing Rule.
Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair, and Painting
This course was initially issued in June 2003 as a joint effort of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control. The course was extensively revised in 2008 following issuance of EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule. The course underwent further revisions in 2011 to address regulatory changes and feedback on course content.
Renovator Initial Certification supersedes the lead-safe work practices courses entitled Lead Safety for Remodeling, Repair, and Painting (EPA 747-B-03-001/2) and Minimizing Lead-based Paint hazards During Renovation, Remodeling, and Painting (EPA 747-B-00-005/6).
