EPA Training

EPA Renovators – Initial Class Information

This class is for certification under section 402 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA). Our students will learn safe work practices on how to test for the presence of lead paint, as well as the safe work practices to protect themselves and the residents of the workplace.

This course was developed by the U.S. EPA, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to train renovation, repair, and painting contractors how to work safely in housing with lead-based paint and comply with EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule, and HUD’s Lead Safe Housing Rule.

This course supersedes the lead-safe work practices courses titled Lead Safety for Remodeling, Repair, and Painting (EPA 747-B-03-001/2) and Minimizing Lead-based Paint Hazards During Renovation, Remodeling, and Painting (EPA 747-B-00-005/6).
