Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Program
EPA’s Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP) Rule requires that firms performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and pre-schools built before 1978 be certified by EPA (or an EPA-authorized state), use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices.
- Renovators are certified upon completion of an EPA accredited renovator training course.
- Their course completion certificate serves as their certification credential.
- For initial certification, renovators must take an 8-hour training that includes 2 hours of hands-on learning.
- To remain certified a renovator must complete a refresher training course before their current certification expires.
- The expiration date is based on when the course was taken (see table below).
- For recertification, renovators must take a 4-hour refresher training that includes hands-on learning every other time they take the refresher course.
- Renovators who take the online refresher training will be certified for three years; renovators who take the hands-on training in the refresher course will be certified for five years.
- If certification expires, then the 8-hour course must be taken again to regain certification.
