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.

The Home Energy and Solar Equipment  4 hour

The Home Energy and Solar Equipment training provides a basic understanding of home heat loss and the most common home renewal energy system to the Construction Supervisor. This course complements the RRP (Renovation, Repair, and Painting) to fulfill the 12 CE credits required for license renewal.

Topics covered in this program include the basic understanding of how insulation and energy saving doors and windows can save the owner the cost of remodeling. This information can often sell a job or give the contractor a competitive edge over others who fail to understand the value added of energy savings.  Also included are the important considerations for insuring a safe roof or ground installation of solar panels and possibly the need to remove and reinstall solar panels when new roofing is done.
