To become a certified renovator, an individual must successfully complete the appropriate course accredited by EPA or by a State or Tribal program that is authorized by EPA. The course completion certificate serves as proof of certification. EPA renovator certification allows the certified individual to perform renovations in any State or Indian Tribal area that does not have a separate authorized State or Tribal renovation program.
In addition to the individual being certified, the company must also apply for registration through EPA. The application process can be started and submitted prior to taking RRP Training.
Who should take the RRP-Initial (RRP) class:
Contractors who work in pre-1978 housing and who might disturb painted surfaces while doing plumbing, electrical, drywall, painting, tile, window replacement, landscaping, repairs, construction, renovation, remodeling, HVAC, demolition, plus many, other jobs. The RRP rule applies to people who work for rental property owners, schools, and day care providers as well as non-profits and government agencies. Learn more at: http://www.epa.gov/lead/
