What is Renovator Refresher Certification Course – Lead Renovator Training?
EPA Lead Certification – This lead renovator refresher training course was developed by the U.S. Environmental protection agency, together with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), to teach renovation, repair, and painting contractors how to work safely in housing with lead-based paint and abide EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule, and HUD’s Lead Safe Housing Rule.
EPA/HUD Model Renovator Refresher Training Course
Renovator Refresher Certification Course was first issued in June 2003 as a shared effort of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s Office of Pollution Prevention and Toxics, together with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Office of Healthy Homes and Lead Hazard Control. The lead renovator training course was extensively revised in 2008 following issuance of EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule. The EPA lead refresher certification course underwent further alterations in 2011 to address regulatory modifications and feedback on course information.
The EPA authorized a final rule to extend certifications for specific renovators (those who received their initial EPA lead certification before March 31, 2011) under the RRP Program. Please keep in mind that EPA RRP lead refresher extensions only apply to renovators who receive recertification training course within the time frames described below. Read more.
