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 mainteance 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.
