Effective April 22, 2010, contractors who perform home improvement activity in housing built prior to 1978 and any child occupied facility must be certified in accordance with the new EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) rule.
To obtain your EPA Certification, complete the following two steps. You do not have to complete either step prior to starting the other:
All trainings, course materials, and tests currently provided by the Lead Safety and Healthy Homes Program are in English only. These courses are only approved for purposes of certification under Section 402 of the TSCA.
There are no City-sponsored trainings currently scheduled. All regional trainings are posted on the Environmental Protection Agency’s website at https://cfpub.epa.gov/flpp/pub/index.cfm?do=main.trainingSearch. It’s updated daily and training providers are required to give at least 7 days’ notice. Be sure to check this website regularly so that you don’t miss the next available training.
To register for a 4-hour training: Email a Refresher Training Registration Form with a copy of your current EPA Certified Renovator Certification and payment of $135 as instructed on the registration form.
DO NOT show up for any class unless you have received an enrollment confirmation.
Enrollment is on a first come, first serve basis, based on receipt of completed registration form and proof of successful completion of approved training courses (if applicable). Be sure to provide the required information or you will not be registered. We will contact you shortly after receipt of this material and confirm your registration.
If classes are already full and you are unable to attend a specific scheduled training, you will be given priority for the next available class. Persons who have submitted their registration forms and payment will be notified immediately of future classes when they become available.
All cancellations must be in writing and received by our offices via mail or email to [email protected] at least 5 full working days (Monday-Friday not including holidays) prior to class in order to receive a refund. The sender is responsible for assuring receipt of all cancellation notices.
After registered persons have been given the opportunity to confirm their participation in new classes, we will update the website and notify everyone on the Contractor Distribution List of the newly scheduled classes via email. To be included on the Contractor Distribution List, send you name and email address to [email protected] and request to be added to this list.
