EPA RRP Certified Renovator
- In 2008 the EPA put the RRP rule into effect. The RRP rule states that individuals performing renovation, repair or painting activities on homes built prior to 1978 and disturb more than 6 square feet of space are required to become a lead safe certified renovator. In order to become an EPA RRP Certified Renovator
individuals must complete an 8-hour lead training course. The course will instruct students how to work while using lead safe work practices and how to prevent lead contamination. The initial course will certify renovators for 5 years, after which they will be required to renew their certification. During the interactive 8-hour initial course students will be required to participate in hands-on activities as well as take a final exam to show they are able to implement what they have learned in the field. If you are already certified and are looking to renew your certification, please take a look at our 4-hour online refresher
