EPA RRP Lead Renovator Initial Course
This course is the EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP), which is a one-day course which provides basic lead-based paint information to contractors who perform renovations, repairs, and painting activities in houses built before 1978 or child-occupied facilities, as required by EPA and the State of Michigan. Course topics include: lead characteristics, uses, health effects on adults and children, lead-safe work practices to minimize lead containing dust during work activities, negative lead assessments, clean up procedures, post-cleaning verification, personal protection equipment, training of non-certified workers, and documentation. Includes course exam. Successful completion of this course and award of the training certificate qualifies the trainee as a Certified Renovator.
EPA required, by April 22, 2010, for all contractors who work in pre-1978 housing and child occupied facilities, including: renovation contractors, maintenance workers in multi-family housing, painters, building supervisors & landlords, homeowners who are planning to remodel, and other specialty trades (plumbers, heating & cooling, electricians).
We offer two (2) different courses:
First, the day long (8 hour) training seminar will provide a certificate to individuals
Second, the ½ day (4 hour) training seminar for current certified Lead Supervisors
all of who will become designated as “EPA Certified Lead Renovators”
Learn proper Lead Safe setup, work practices, and cleaning on renovation jobs. Learn about the Lead Paint pamphlet that renovators are required to hand out. Includes all books, hand outs & paperwork for applying for your EPA certification.
The Certified Lead Renovator:
* must be present at each work site for Target Housing (pre-1978) or Child Occupied Facilities (schools & day care)
* must be on-site at each impacted building on a daily basis
* must be at the job-site during paint testing, sign posting, work are set-up and clean-up phases of the work.
* Provide training to the non-certified work staff that will be working on buildings affected by this regulation.
* NOTE: Each contractor performing work that disturbs lead-based paint must have their own Certified Lead Renovator present – not just one per job site.
