- Cost: $180 per student.
- As of April 22, 2010, renovations conducted for compensation, must be performed by Certified Firms using Certified Renovators and lead safe work practices. Firms may begin applying for certification prior to taking the training. Accredited training is required for one to become a Certified Renovator.
- EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Final Rule (40 CFR 745) applies to pre-1978 housing or child occupied facilities (includes elementary schools, pre-K, day care and other facilities.)
- Firms that wish to work in pre-1978 homes and child-occupied facilities must apply to EPA and pay a fee ($300) in order to become certified (renewable every 5 years).
- Certified renovators who have taken our training also meet HUD’s training requirements.
- Once an individual has successfully completed a Certified Renovator Course, delivered by an EPA-accredited training provider *, he becomes an EPA Certified Renovator. A refresher course is needed every 5 years to maintain certification.
- One of the two courses below are needed for individuals to become Certified Renovators. Except on HUD jobs, only one Certified Renovator is needed per job site. The Certified Renovator can train all the other workers on the job site.
- 8 hour Initial RRP Course: This course includes lecture, demonstrations and hands-on. Topics include: Background information, Regulations, How to use EPA Recognized test kits, Setup, During work activities, Cleaning and checking your work, Recordkeeping and Training Non-Certified Renovation Workers.
- 4 hour Refresher RRP Course: Those who have taken lead abatement supervisor, HUD Lead Safe and certain other courses may become Certified Renovators by taking this refresher.
- Requirements for Certificate Award: A course certificate will be awarded to those who successfully complete the course. Attendance of the entire class, demonstrating successful completion of hands-on activities, payment and passing an exam are required.
*This accreditation for Chem Scope, Inc pertains only to training individuals in states such as CT who do not have EPA Authorized RRP programs, to obtain certification to conduct renovation, repair and painting pursuant to Section 402 of the Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA)(15 U.S.C. 2682). These courses do not certify one to do abatement and additional training that we offer is needed for OSHA compliance.
