This 24-hour course meets EPA's training requirements for those individuals who perform lead-based paint inspections and/or clearance examinations on abatement and renovation projects. While there is no pre-requisite for attending this course, students must complete the course and pass the course examination to obtain a 6-month interim certification. During this 6-month period the Inspector can perform inspections and clearance examinations while EPA processes their certification application.
In addition, applicants must take and pass the EPA National Certification Examination. There are NO time extensions. If the student fails to obtain certification within this 6-month time period the interim certificate will expire and the Inspector will no longer be able to perform inspections and clearance examinations and will have to take the ENTIRE course over again unless the application is in process. To maintain certification, students must complete a refresher course prior to the expiration date on their certificate.
