Contractors who perform renovation, repairs, and painting must train and re-certify in lead-safe work practices before renovating older housing. These strict new EPA rules take effect April 22, 2010.

New certification is required for all home improvement activity that disturbs more than 6 square feet of interior or 20 square feet of exterior lead paint in housing built before 1978, and in any child-occupied facility.

Course covers topics on containment, minimization and cleanup of lead hazards. Upon successful completion of the course, students are issued a certificate of course completion.
