NEW EPA training requirements are now in place for Certified Renovators! The new EPA rules apply to contractors who renovate or repair housing, child-care facilities or schools built before 1978. Under the new rules, trained contractors and workers must follow lead-safe work practice standards to reduce potential exposure to dangerous levels of lead during renovation and repair activities. The requirements apply to anyone who could potentially expose children to lead dust during their work and includes builders, painters, plumbers, and electricians.
In April 2010, this certification became MANDATORY for anyone who could potentially expose children to lead dust. Greenville Technical College obtained EPA-approval to teach this new course in July, 2009 - one of the first nine approved training providers in the nation! Make sure your firm is ready for this new regulatory mandate by taking our Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting course.
