Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Training

This course is accredited by both the EPA and the R.I. Department of Health.
This course is approved for purposes of certification under Section 402 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA).

In April 2010, EPA began requiring that firms performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified by EPA. These firms must use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices. Individuals can become certified renovators by taking this eight-hour course. Students will learn how to comply with EPA's rule and how to perform lead-safe work practices.

*Certificates of completion are required to include a photo of the certified renovator/ remodeler. Students must submit a digital head shot photo via email to
