On February 10, 2016, the Administrator signed a final rule to make several revisions to the RRP and Lead-based Paint Activities Programs. The revisions will improve the day-to-day function of the programs by reducing burdens to industry and EPA, and clarifying language for training providers.
First, EPA modified the requirement that the renovator refresher training course have a hands-on component under the RRP program. Under the final rule, Renovators can take a refresher course without the hands-on training every other time they get certified. A course without hands-on training can be taken completely online. Renovators who take the online training will be certified for three years; renovators who take the hands-on training will be certified for five years. Modifying the hands-on requirement would give renovators easier access to trainings saving them time and money and possibly resulting in a higher number of renovators taking the refresher course.
Second, the Agency removed jurisdictions under the abatement program. Eliminating jurisdictions will lower burden and costs for applicants because they will send fewer applications and pay less in fees. Third, EPA added clarifying language to the requirements for training providers under both the RRP and abatement programs. Adding language to clarify what constitutes a violation would make the regulations consistent with other lead-based paint program regulations. This does not change any requirements for training providers.
You can find information about the rule and a pre-publication copy of the Federal Register notice on EPA’s Lead Program website at www.epa.gov/lead.
Can you take the course online?
We do not offer an online course. The classroom course that we provide gives students a 5-year certification. The online course does not offer the "hands-on" portion and so the certification will only be good for 3 years afterwhich you must take the classroom course.
The rule affects paid renovators who work in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities, including:
Renovation contractors Maintenance workers in multi-family housing Painters and other specialty trades.
Under the rule, child-occupied facilities are defined as residential, public or commercial buildings where children under age six are present on a regular basis. The requirements apply to renovation, repair or painting activities. The rule generally does not apply to minor maintenance or repair activities where less than six square feet of lead-based paint is disturbed in a room or where less then 20 square feet of lead-based paint is disturbed on the exterior, but this does not include window replacement, demolition, or prohibited practices.
The Certified Lead Renovator class is a one day training program meeting all EPA requirements for contractors, property owners or managers and maintenance personnel who are involved in any activity that has the potential to disturb lead based paint.
The following topics will be covered:
► Lead Dust Hazards ► EPA Regulations, Violations and Fines ► Prep Work ► Dust Containment ► Clean-Up of Work Site ► Post-Work Inspecting ► Record Keeping ► Training Non-Certified Workers ► Final Exam
The EPA requires that specific forms be used for notifying residents, home owners and other interested parties and documenting testing procedures, test kit verification, worker training and other aspects of lead-safe work practices.
The basic layouts of the forms are included in the RRP Certified Renovator Class Manual, however you will have to create them for your own business. These forms are available for download in both pdf and word format. A complete library of forms can be downloaded for $129 or $99 for our training graduates.
The following booklets, brochures and documents are available to be downloaded at no charge.
