EPA Lead Certified Renovator for Renovation, Repair, and Painting REFRESHER Training
Instructors: Kris Alberti and Dale Yerabek
Renovators have a role to play in preventing lead poisoning. Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to both children and adults.
This 4-hour refresher training course, which is required every 5 years, is for individuals who have previously completed the initial Certified Renovator Lead Certification in compliance with the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule. The training will refresh RRP contractors in how to work safely in housing and child-occupied facilities with lead-based paint and to teach them how to comply with both EPA’s RRP Rule, and the Washington State Department of Commerce’s Lead Safe Housing Rule.
Participants will learn lead safe work practices and how to work safely and effectively. Students will also review the information that was provided to them in the initial RRP Certified Renovator training course, and be provided with current and up-to-date information regarding regulatory changes, changes in state-of-the-art work practices, as well as other changes to the RRP Certified Renovator discipline. The training focuses on working safely with lead-based painted surfaces and topics include:
- Testing for Lead-Based Paint
- Review of Set-Up Practices
- Review of Prohibited Practices, Personal Protective Equipment and Dust Control
- Cleaning Activities and Checking Your Work
- Training of Non-Certified Renovators
- Review and Test
DO NOT MISS YOUR DEADLINE!
- If you miss your five-year anniversary deadline to re -certify, you will be required to repeat the 8-hour initial Certified Renovator course. There are no exceptions.
You MUST present your current Lead RRP Certificate in order to take the REFRESHER course.
