IICRC Approval: 4 CEC Hours
The Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule establishes requirements for firms and individuals performing renovations and affects contractors, property managers, and others who disturb painted surfaces. It applies to work in houses, apartments, and child-occupied facilities (such as schools and day-care centers) built before 1978. It includes pre-renovation education requirements as well as training, firm certification, and work practice requirements.
The EPA requires that a 4-hour Live refresher is taken within 5 years of the initial certification to attain another 5-year renewal.
The rule in general, anyone who is paid to perform work that disturbs paint in housing and child-occupied facilities built before 1978 must be certified. This includes all firms, even sole proprietorships.
Examples of the types of firms covered:
This course was developed by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to refresh the training of renovation, repair, and painting contractors in how to work safely in housing with lead-based paint and to teach them how to comply with both EPA’s RRP Rule and HUD’s Lead Safe Housing Rule. The audience: The audience for this course includes renovators, remodelers, painters, maintenance personnel, and any other workers removing or modifying painted surfaces, who have completed an EPA or HUD-approved lead-safe work practices course in the past and who need to refresh that training. They will be taking the course to obtain EPA certification as a Certified Renovator. As the trainer, you will want to highlight information and exercises that best meet audience needs. Although customizing the course to your audience is appropriate to a certain degree, the HUD-related material should be taught to all trainees, even if they are not currently working in Federally-assisted housing. All renovators are potential HUD contractors and should know and understand this information.
To avoid fines up to $37,500.00 per occurrence, this 4-hour Initial RRP course will comply with the regulation and certifications.
