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!
