All contractors who perform renovations, repairs, or painting in pre-1978 housing or child-occupied facilities must be EPA Lead Safe Certified.  Individuals and firms that are not certified could face fines of up to $43,611 per day. Affected individuals include but are not limited to renovators, remodelers, plumbers, painters, electricians, window & door contractors, landlords and some building engineers.

The Lead Renovator Certification course includes both EPA and HUD approved lead safety training and certification. Any contractor performing work on pre-1978 homes or child-occupied facilities must employ at least one Certified Renovator who has successfully completed this training. Companies must also be registered as a Lead Safe Certified Firm with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) upon completion of this course.

Topics covered in the lead renovator training class include:

  • Why should I be concerned about lead paint?
  • Regulations
  • Using EPA-recognized test kits
  • Before beginning work
  • Containing dust during work
  • Cleaning activities and checking your work
  • Recordkeeping
  • Training non-certified renovation workers
  • Hands-on training skills

Upon completion, students will be issued an EPA Lead Renovator certification for five years.

We also offer a refresher lead renovator training class when you need to re-certify.
