Moderate Risk Deleading RRP Option - 4 Hr

This course was developed by the Massachusetts Division of Occupational Safety (DOS), in collaboration with the Massachusetts Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP). This certificate allows the RRP trained professional to upgrade their abilities to Delead residential properties using Moderat Risk types of lead abatement. Upon completion of  the training the DOS will issue the certificate holder an authorization number.

Renovators have a role to play in preventing lead poisoning. Dust from renovations, repairs, and surface preparation during painting activities creates potential lead hazards when lead-based paint is disturbed and lead-safe work practices are not used. Massachusetts has long recognized that many renovations have been used as illegal lead abatements. In an effort to protect the children of the Commonwealth and reduce the costs to a building owner the Moderat Risk Deleading RRP Option is being offered. Successful completion of the course includes taking and passing the test to become a Moderate Risk Deleader.

This half day class is from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.

Objectives for the Course

  • Understand the Regulations
  • Review Set Up of Practices
  • Review Prohibited Practices
  • Cleaning and Checking Your Work
  • Record Keeping

Organizations That Will Benefit

  • State and local public agencies that administer Federal funds for housing
  • Non-profit and community housing organizations, particularly those that assist public agencies in administering Federal housing funds
  • State and local health departments
  • Home inspection firms
  • Lead and other environmental services firms

Who Should Attend?

Anyone who has successfully completed an EPA or HUD approved lead safe work practices course in the past and who
  • wants to increase their services
  • renovators, remodelers, painters
  • maintenance personnel, and any other workers removing or modifying painted surfaces

Moderate Risk Owner/Agent - 8 Hr

This course was developed by the Massachusetts Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (CLPPP). This certificate and authorization allows the owner of a property or their employee (maintenance person, property manager, etc.) to Delead a property they own or manage in order to bring it into Compliance with the Massachusetts Lead Law.

A Moderate Risk Owner/Agent authorization is specifically for persons as described above. This course does not allow contractors to perform Deleading work professionally. Contractors who wish to be able to Delead properties professionally must take the 8-Hour RRP Course followed by the 4-Hour Moderate Risk Deleading RRP Option Course.

Properties must be brought into Compliance with the Massachusetts Lead Law when a child under the age of 6 years resides there, or an "Order to Correct" has been issued. By performing some or all of the work themselves, a property owner or maintenance person can reduce the overall cost of the Deleading Work. Any work performed for Lead Law Compliance MUST be performed by an appropriately authorized Deleader. Once the course has been successfully completed, CLPPP will mail the student a test which is to be taken and returned by mail to CLPPP. If a passing score is achieved on the test, the student will receive an authorization package from CLPPP.

This full day class is from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.

Complete your CSL Continuing Ed with RRP

Effective July 1, 2013, the renewal process for all Construction Supervisors will require the proof of having taken the required number of Continuing Education credits. As many of the CSL holders work on housing built before 1978, additional training under the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule is required if lead paint is disturbed. The Board of Building Regulations and Standards in conjunction with the  Department of Labor Standards have work together to allow the full eight hours of the RRP course to be applied for continuing education in specific instances. This means that a CSL could fulfill the 12 hour requirements in a day and a half, instead of two six hour days. Simply take a Combo-Course of RRP followed by the Home Energy and Solar Equipment class the next day.

ETI feels that the Continuing Education credits should help the CSL holder improve there skills and allow them to be more competitive in their trade. We believe very strongly that the lead paint issue is one that most CSL's will come across in their working careers. Understanding these important issues is a must for anyone doing remodeling. EPA is now gathering information and having hearings to advance the RRP rule to commercial buildings. New findings about the toxicity of lead as well as adults now being more likely to be poisoned than children will probably ensure this new rule becomes law.

Most importantly, every CSL that works on older homes and buildings should know how to protect themselves, their clients, and their families from the devastating effects that lead can cause.

These courses have been approved by the Massachusetts Board of Building Regulations and Standards for eight hours and four hours for continuing Construction Supervisor education.
