Does your business involve the renovation, repair or painting of structures built before 1978? If so, there are federal regulations that took effect, April 22, 2010, which may prevent you from performing your work. Under the United States Environmental Protection Agencies Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Program. Construction firms must apply for and receive EPA Certification to disturb paint as part of their work in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities. In addition, all of these jobs must be supervised by Certified Renovators; specifically, individuals who have completed an EPA-accredited, full-day training course. The training course is required for any contractor that is involved in any activity that will – or has the potential to – disturb six square feet of lead-based paint in a room or 20 square feet on the exterior. The rule does not apply to minor maintenance or repair activities; however, window replacement is not considered minor maintenance or repair. We bring a blend of easy compliance, practical application, and real answers to your questions to this training. In addition to the EPA curriculum, we will provide you with valuable insights on how L&I views lead related work along with other free resources to help your company stay in compliance. Name, home address, and birth date are required at registration. Seating is limited so be sure to register as soon as you can. You are required to renew every five years. If you renew through an online program, it’s every 3 years.

 

Refresher will run 8:00 am – 3:00 pm

Firms who knowingly or willingly violate the RRP Program requirements could result in penalties of up to $10,000 per day, per violation and/or face imprisonment.

This 6-hour refresher training class, which is required every 5 years, is for individuals who have previously completed the Certified Lead Renovator Initial in compliance with the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule. Your are required to renew every five years. If you renew through an online program, it’s every 3 years. The training will refresh RRP contractors in how to work safely in housing and child-occupied facilities with lead-based paint and to teach them how to comply with both EPA’s RRP Rule and the Washington State Department of Commerce’s Lead Safe Housing Rule. Participants will learn lead-safe work practices. Students will also review the information that was provided to them in the Initial Certified Lead Renovator class and be provided with current information regarding regulatory changes, changes in state-of-the-art work practices, as well as other changes to the RRP Certified Lead Renovator discipline. The training focuses on working safely with lead-based painted surfaces and topics include: regulations, testing for lead-based paint, review of set-up practices, review of prohibited practices, personal protective equipment, dust control, cleaning activities and checking your work, record keeping, training of non-certified renovators, review, and test.

*Students are required to show documentation of initial certification. Bring your unexpired CLR card to class. If you cannot find your CLR card, you will need to contact the company who previously certified you to obtain a copy. All of this needs to be done prior to the class. Because this is a individual certification, it is required to obtain your personal home address and date-of-birth before class. If you show up to the class without your CLR card, you will not be able to attend the CLR Refresher and will still be held responsible for the class fee. However, if this a a combination class of the Initial and Refresher, with Instructor approval you may attend the CLR Initial and pay the difference between the two classes. You will need to have your photo taken at the class for your new card.
