On April 22, 2010 a law was passed; the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule, generally referred to as the EPA RRP RULE. If a company is doing work as described under the RRP Rule, they have to apply for Firm Certification. It is easy to certify a company. The owners just fill out the application and send in the $300.00 fee and if everything is filled out properly, they will receive the firm certification in a month or so. If a firm, company or building owner pays anyone to do the required work under the RRP rule, the worker needs to be a Certified EPA RRP Renovator. The EPA requires a minimum of one Certified RRP Renovator to work on any proposed work as described under the EPA RRP Rule.
To become a Certified EPA RRP Renovator you have to take an 8 hour EPA training course from an EPA Accredited training provider. This is the course being offered at IPTW 2011. The 8 hour class includes lectures and hands–on training exercises covering the important aspects of the EPA RRP Rule. You will learn how to comply with the new law and most importantly, learn how to perform lead-safe work practices. There is a short test to take at the end of the day. Once you complete the hands-on exercises and pass the test you will become EPA Renovator Certified. The certification is good for the period of 5 years.
