Training Renewal Requirements
Individuals must attend a 4-hour Refresher Training class every 5 years to maintain their DLS Lead Certification. If your training certificate has expired, individuals have up to one year to complete the refresher training requirements before they are required to re-attend the 8-hour initial course, however no RRP work can be performed until the license is renewed.
Overview of Lead-Safe Renovation Regulations
(Source: MA DLS)
Common renovation activities such as sanding, sawing, grinding, scraping or demolishing components with lead-painted surfaces can produce exposures to lead dust and paint chips that can be harmful to adults and children. To help protect against this risk, the U.S.EPA issued the Lead Safe Renovation Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule, 40 CFR 745, Subpart E in April 2010. The RRP Rule, which is currently in effect nationwide, applies to renovation, repair and painting work conducted for a fee that disturbs more than threshold amounts of lead paint in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities. Under the RRP Rule, contractors who perform such work must receive Firm Certification from the EPA, employ at least one job supervisor who has completed the 1-day lead safety training from approved trainers, and follow specified lead-safe work practices.
On July 9, 2010, the Massachusetts Department of Labor Standards (DLS) received EPA authorization to administer its own standards for Lead Safe Renovation work in target housing and child-occupied facilities, in lieu of the EPA RRP Rule in Massachusetts.

Zack Academy is proud to partner with Mary Chabot Training. Please note that this is their company profile, and is not the Mary Chabot Training website.
Founded in 2000, Mary Chabot Training has provided Deleading Training Classes for property owners in MA. In 2009, it became one of the first schools certified to present the RRP training in the New England Area. It also became one of the first schools to offer the new Moderate Risk Deleading Supplement that allows contractors to work on deleading projects without the much more stringent training requirements of a licensed deleader. The school very rarely cancels training â€“ Because MCT has its own facility, it will hold classes with a minimum of two students. Our instructors have vast experience as life-long adult education providers.
