Renovator Refresher Training - 4 Hr
This course was developed by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to refresh the training of renovation, repair, and painting contractors in how to work safely in housing with lead-based paint and to teach them how to comply with both EPA’s RRP Rule, and HUD’s Lead Safe Housing Rule.
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. EPA requires certification for renovation firms, and training and certification for renovators to prevent lead poisoning resulting from unsafe renovation practices.
Successful completion of the course includes taking and passing the test to become an EPA Certified Renovator.
This half day class is from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.
