EPA Renovator Training Initial Course - RRP (8-Hour)
EPA developed this 8-hour training course to instruct renovators, painters, and remodelers how to work safely in homes with lead-based paint. This EPA approved course is designed for training contractors who work in target housing or child occupied facilities. Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. To protect against this risk, effective April 22, 2010 EPA requires this certification for all contractors who perform renovation, remodeling, painting, or maintenance in target housing to protect the families that live in these homes as well as the workers and their families.
