For individuals who have previously completed the 8-hour EPA Lead Renovator Initial Certification course in compliance with the Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule, this 4-hour RRP Refresher Course is required to renew your Lead-Safe Renovator Certification. This course is now approved by the EPA to be 100% online, so you are allowed to renew your lead-safe certification from the comfort of your own home! 

To renew your Lead Renovator certification, the refresher training course must be completed prior to the expiration date on your initial training certificate.

Course Overview

For individuals who have previously completed the EPA Lead Renovator Initial Certification in compliance with the Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) rule, this 4-hour Refresher Course is required to renew your individual certification.

More about the Lead Renovator, Repair, and Painting Rule:

Effective April 22, 2010, anyone who performs renovations, repairs, or painting in pre-1978 housing or child-occupied facilities must be EPA Lead Safe Certified. Individuals and firms that are not certified could face fines of up to $37,500 per day.

The RRP law applies if your project disturbs:

  • More than 6 square feet of interior painted surface AND/OR
  • More than 20 square feet of exterior painted surface

 

Companies performing this type of work must be registered with the EPA or an EPA-authorized state, and at least one person on the actual job site must be a Certified Renovator, which is achieved by taking the 8-hour Lead Renovator Initial Certification Course.  Renewal of this training course is required every 5 years by the EPA. Individuals certified in an EPA-authorized state may be required to renew earlier than every 5 years, so check with your state Lead Based Paint regulation program for details.


Frequent Questions:
  • What if I can't find my previous training certificate?
    • First, if you remember who your previous training provider was, contact them for a copy of the certificate. If you don't remember, you can try calling the EPA Lead Hotline at 1-800-424-5323 for a list of training providers in your area to call to try to determine which was your trainer.
  • What are the details of the final exam?
    • The Final Certification exam is 25 questions, multiple choice. A passing score is 72% or higher. If a student fails the exam, they can review the course material before attempting the exam a second time. Only two attempts are permitted per participant.
  • What if I fail the final exam twice? 
    • If both permitted attempts of the final exam result in a failing score, the participant must re-take the course before additional attempts are permitted. A $50 retake fee will be required to reset your course. 
  • What if my certificate is already expired?
    • You may still be eligible to take the refresher course, as the EPA issued an extension for renewal based on the date your took your original course:
      • EPA Certified Renovators who received certification on or before March 31, 2010 now have until March 31, 2016 to get re-certified.

        • EPA Certified Renovators who received certification between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011 have a 1 year grace period after their original expiration date to take the refresher course.

    Hands-on vs. Online Refresher Training Options
    (Source: EPA Final Ruling 02-17-2016)
    The EPA will allow renovators to take a refresher course without hands-on training once every other certification. Once a renovator takes the refresher course online without the hands-on training, their next refresher training must include hands-on training. 

    The certification from the refresher course without hands-on training will last for 3 years. Taking the course without hands-on training is optional but once a renovator takes the course, their next refresher course must include hands-on training and be taken within 3 years of their previous certification. 

    The certification from taking a course with hands-on training will last for 5 years.

    Online Modules include:

    • Regulations
    • 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
