Project Designer Courses
This 8-hour initial course meets EPA's training requirements for those individuals that will prepare abatement project designs, occupant protection plans, and abatement reports pursuant to §745.226. EPA requires that an individual wishing to be certified as a Project Designer first successfully complete the Supervisor class and have a certain amount of education and experience. Proof of education and experience must be sent with the student's application to EPA. During the 6 month interim certification period the Project Designer can perform the designated lead activities while EPA processes their certification application.
There are NO time extensions. If the individual fails to obtain certification within this 6 month time period the interim certificate will expire and the Project Designer will no longer be able to perform their designated lead activities work 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.
