Your initial RRP certification is valid for 5 years, though certain individuals were granted an extension (see below). Students who allow their certification to expire, by even a day, are not eligible for the refresher class.
In April of 2015 EPA announced the extension of RRP certification for certain Individual Renovators. An excerpt from the EPA’s announcement is below:
Under this final rule,
These extensions apply only to individual renovator certification, not to firm certification. Also, these extensions only apply to renovators that fall under EPA’s renovation program and not to renovators under authorized state programs.
*These courses do not certify one to do lead abatement and are not intended to provide OSHA compliance training. For those interested, Chem Scope does separately offer lead abatement and/or OSHA lead awareness training
