Product Description

Lead RRP Training for Contractors – Required by US EPA

All contractors that work on pre-1978 homes and disturb more than 6 square feet of paint interior or 20 square feet of paint exterior or engage in window replacements is required to be certified.  This EPA Rule went into effect April 22, 2010.

Public Health and Safety, Inc. is an accredited training provider for the Renovation, Repair and Painting training for Certified Renovators. The course meets the requirements of the US EPA RRP and IDPH rules.

Per US EPA, Renovators who received certification on or before March 31, 2010, now have until March 31, 2016, to get re-certified. Renovators who received certification between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011, will have one year added to their 5-year certification.  For example if you completed your Renovation Course on March 30, 2011 your new expiration date is March 30, 2017.  Subsequent certifications for renovators receiving the extension will be five years. These extensions only apply to renovators that fall under EPA's renovation program and not to renovators under authorized state programs.  Therefore, if you took your class on or after April 1, 2011 your certificate will expire in 5 years.  There is no Extension on or after April 1, 2011!

Renovation Repair & Painting Initial or Refresher Course with hands-on


Each student is assigned a unique identifier to launch and re-launch the course, each student completes periodic knowledge checks equivalent to the number and content of those in EPA's model course, and each student is tested with at least 20 questions and scores at least 80% for successful completion. EPA recognizes the possibility that someone could have another person take the course for him or her; however, there are potential penalties for those who do this. Pursuant to 18 U.S.C. 1001, it is a criminal violation to knowingly and willfully make a false or fraudulent statement in any matter within EPA's jurisdiction. Furthermore, if a renovator is tempted to have someone else take the course for them, they will know that they will have to take the course in person for their next certification, ensuring that their identity can be verified, because the e-learning course can only be taken once every other certification.

Public Health & Safety, Inc. has to issue a final certificate with PHOTO.  Upon completion of class the student is responsible for emailing their 600 px x 450 px photo and a copy of there previous 8-Hr or 4-Hour Renovator Course Certificate to:

To become certified as a renovator, a person must successfully complete a renovator course accredited by EPA or by a State, territorial, or tribal program authorized by EPA. To gain initial certification, individual renovators must complete an 8-hour training course. Trainees are taught either in a classroom or via electronic learning (e-learning). E-learning is a web-based training that is not lead by an instructor where the student can take the training at his or her own pace. Requirements specific to e-learning are found at 40 CFR 745.225. To maintain certification, renovators must complete a renovator refresher course before their certification expires. If the renovator does not complete the course within the required timeframe, the individual must retake the initial 8-hour course to become certified again.

The 8-hour initial training includes hands-on training in testing for lead in paint, methods for minimizing the creation of dust and lead-based paint hazards, interior and exterior containment and cleanup methods, and cleaning verification. Activities covered include the use of EPA-recognized test kits, setting up barriers, covering furniture, ducts, and carpeted floors with plastic, mopping floors, bagging waste, and determining that the work area has been adequately cleaned. Each student performs these activities in front of an instructor who determines if the student is proficient in each one. Students must be deemed proficient in order to pass the class and become a certified renovator. The current version of the renovator refresher course includes hands-on training in testing paint for lead and cleaning verification.

ON FEBRUARY 10, 2016 THE EPA CHANGED ITS RULE TO ALLOW RENOVATORS AN OPTION TO TAKE A REFRESHER COURSE WITHOUT HANDS-ON TRAINING ONCE EVERY OTHER REFRESHER CERTIFICATION.  The certification from the refresher course without hands-on training will last for 3 years. Taking the course without hands-on training is optional but once a renovator takes the course, their next refresher course must include hands-on training and be taken within 3 years of their previous certification. The certification from taking a course with hands-on training will last for 5 years.  You may find out more information about this final rule by clicking here.

The current Discount price is $99.00.  

Why Are You Here?
Traditional renovation work, without lead safe work practices, creates significant dust-lead hazards if lead-based paint is disturbed.

The leaded dust generated by traditional renovation work can cause lead poisoning in children. It can also poison pregnant women, yourself and other workers and even pets. Practical changes in work practices can minimize and contain dust. The use of lead-safe work practices makes the job safer and reduces your liability exposure.

EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting Final Rule (40 CFR 745) requires that renovations conducted for compensation, must be performed by Certified Firms using Certified Renovators. Renovation firms that wish to work in pre-1978 homes and child-occupied facilities must apply to EPA and pay a fee in order to become certified. Renovators seeking to become Certified Renovators must successfully complete an EPA-accredited renovator course or a course accredited by an EPA authorized State or Tribe. This course is the EPA model course for Certified Renovators and as such meets all requirements in 40 CFR 745.90.

This course will teach you how to comply with the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule and the HUD Lead Safe Housing Rule, and how to perform lead-safe work practices safely and effectively.

Once you have successfully complete this Certified Renovator refresher course, delivered by an EPA-accredited training provider, you will be an EPA Certified Renovator. EPA Certified Renovator status will allow you to do lead safe renovation, repair, and painting work in pre-1978 housing and in child-occupied facilities where work will disturb lead-based paint. Your certification is valid for five years from the date of completion of the course. To renew certification after five years, you must successfully complete another EPA-accredited Certified Renovator Refresher Course before your initial certification expires. Refresher training must be taken every five years to maintain certification. If the certified renovator training is not refreshed within five years of the previous training, you must retake the initial course to become certified again.

Instructions: Complete the "Agenda" introduction module, and seven modules, and then complete the E-learning assessment. This is a 20 question multiple choice E-learning assessment. You will need to complete this E-learning assessment with 80% or better (16 out of 20) total score. Once one completes the e-learning assessment you will receive a "Unique Numbered Completion Certificate".
