Beginning in April 2010, The Toxic Substances Control Act will require contractors to test for lead paint in pre-1978 homes and if detected, use Lead Safe Work Practices. This will require companies to be EPA registered and have a Certified Renovator available. This is the mandatory course to become a Certified Renovator. It is eight hours (one day) with an end-of-course exam. Two of the eight hours are hands-on. Successful completion of the course will entitle the student to receive a certification as an EPA-recognized “Certified Renovator.” The course taught will satisfy EPA’s Renovation, Remodeling & Painting Rule-40 CFR 745.
Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:
1. Communicate the dangers of lead paint to your prospective customers.
2. Understand the need for and ensure that proper Lead Safe Work Practices (LSWP) are being followed at all relevant job sites.
3. Train and supervise your installers to ensure compliance with LSWP.
4. Maintain proper records should your company be audited by the EPA or other state regulatory agency.
