Lead Safety for Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) -Initial
This one-day EPA certification course is required for all contractors who will perform renovations, repairs and painting activities in houses built before 1978 or in child-occupied facilities, and is the minimum certification required to work on residential rehab programs for publicly funded jobs. Course topics include characteristics and uses of lead-based paint, lead’s health effects on adults and children, lead-safe work practices to minimize contaminated dust during work activities, absence-of-lead assessments, cleanup procedures, post-renovation cleaning verification, personal protective equipment, training of non-certified workers, and required compliance documentation. The required course exam is provided, and successful completion will certify the attendee as an EPA Certified Renovator. This certification must be renewed every 5 years (see Refresher training below).
As per the Michigan Lead Abatement Act, contractors and their employees who engage in the control of lead hazards in target housing and child-occupied facilities must first become a licensed lead abatement worker or supervisor, and work for a licensed lead abatement contractor (company). Further, this same act requires that these certifications be renewed every 3 years (see under 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.
