EPA RRP Certification & Refresher Courses

EPA Renovate, Repair, and Paint (RRP) Certification Course:

Since April 22, 2010, federal law has required that contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects which disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and schools built before 1978 must be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

“EPA regulations now mandate that any contractor or maintenance staff, from plumbers to electricians to painters, who disturbs more than six square feet of lead paint, replaces windows or does any demolition while working in a pre-1978 home, apartment, school or day care center, must now be Lead-Safe Certified and trained in the lead-safe work practices. If not, you could face tens of thousands of dollars in fines. These regulations are now the standard of care for the industry and complying with them will reduce your chance of being involved in potentially expensive lawsuits”.- EPA

 

Renovate, Repair, and Paint (RRP) Refresher Course:

Is it time to renew your Renovate, Repair, and Paint (RRP} Certification since the law's inception in 2010? Federal law requires that contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and schools built before 1978 be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.

If you are already a Certified Renovator, be sure to take your four hour refresher course before your current certification expires. EPA regulations state that any Certified Renovator, whose RRP certification has expired, even by one day, is no longer eligible to take the four hour RRP refresher course and must re-take the eight hour initial RRP course over again. There is no penalty for taking your four hour refresher course early.
