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 $38,892 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
