Abatement is any set of measures designed to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards. Abatement work that is not conducted by a Certified Lead Abatement Worker under direction of a Lead Abatement Supervisor is subject to heavy fines by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) or applicable Authorized State Lead Program.
This course is offered in-person, and includes both training and certification for lead abatement workers. Certified abatement firms must have certified Lead Abatement Workers on site who have completed lead abatement training & certification from an approved provider, and have processed the necessary paperwork with the EPA or Authorized State. Training concludes with the required Lead Worker course certification exam.
