Lead Risk Assessor - Initial
The Lead Risk Assessor initial course is an EPA/State of Michigan requirement for those who wish to perform lead risk assessments in “target housing” (pre-1978 dwellings) or “child occupied facilities” within the State of Michigan.
This two-day course teaches the regulated process for determining the presence and type of lead-based paint hazards through topics that include reviewing and interpreting lead inspection data, detailed review of homes to identify potential lead-related hazards, thorough review of dust, soil, paint, and water sampling requirements, required methodologies to evaluate hazards and painted components in housing, developing strategies and recommendations to control lead-related hazards, and required documentation and report creation standards.
Upon completion of this course, attendees must submit certificate and fees to the State of Michigan to obtain their State certification as lead risk assessors, and pass a third party (State) certification exam. Further, applicants must first be currently accredited as a Lead Inspector in the State of Michigan. Finally, applicants must be able to document either a) at least a high school diploma or equivalent and 3 years of related experience in a construction or environmental trade or b) an Associate’s degree and 2 years of related experience in a construction or environmental trade or c) a Bachelor’s degree and 1 year experience in construction or environmental field.
As per the Michigan Lead Abatement Act, any individual who wishes to test for lead-related hazards in target housing and child-occupied facilities must first become a licensed lead inspector/risk assessor. Further, this same act requires that this certification be renewed every 3 years ~ see under Lead Risk Assessor in Refresher Training. While the required applications are provided during the training course, the fees and required third party (State) licensing exam required for individuals are not included in the cost of the training course.Download link's provided will expire within a few days, but if you miss the opportunity to download, they will be provided in class.
