RRP - Renovation, Repair and Painting Training
Renovation, Repair and Painting Contractors-
Are You Certified?
In April 2010, the US Environmental Protection Agency put into effect the Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule.
EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting Final Rule (40 CFR 745) requires that renovations conducted for compensation, must be performed by Certified Firms using Certified Renovators. Renovation firms that wish to work in pre-1978 homes and child-occupied facilities must apply to EPA and pay a fee in order to become certified. Renovators seeking to become Certified Renovators must successfully complete an EPA-accredited renovator course or a course accredited by an EPA authorized State or Tribe. This course is the EPA model course for Certified Renovators and as such meets all requirements in 40 CFR 745.90.

- The traditional renovation work you do now can create significant dust-lead hazards if lead-based paint is disturbed. The leaded dust generated by traditional renovation work can cause lead poisoning in children. It can also poison pregnant women, yourself and other workers and even pets.
- Practical changes in work practices can minimize and contain dust. The use of lead-safe work practices makes the job safer and reduces your liability exposure.
- This course will teach you how to comply with the EPA Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule and the HUD Lead Safe Housing Rule, and how to perform lead-safe work practices safely and effectively.
- Once you have successfully completed a Certified Renovator Course, delivered by an EPA-accredited training provider, you are an EPA Certified Renovator. EPA Certified Renovator status will allow you to do lead safe renovation, repair, and painting work in pre-1978 housing and in child-occupied facilities where work will disturb lead-based paint.
- Your certification is valid for five years from the date of completion of the course. To renew certification after five years, you must successfully complete an EPA-accredited Certified Renovator Refresher Course before your initial certification expires. Refresher training must be taken every five years to maintain certification. If the certified renovator training is not refreshed within five years of the previous training, you must retake the initial course to become certified again.
