Instructor: Edward Wenz, Contractors Training Institute
This refresher course is the EPA Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP), a half-day course that provides basic lead-based paint information to contractors who perform renovations, repairs, and painting activities in houses built before 1978 or child-occupied facilities, as required by EPA and the State of Michigan. Course topics include: lead characteristics, uses, health effects on adults and children, lead-safe work practices to minimize lead containing dust during work activities, negative lead assessments, clean up procedures, post-cleaning verification, personal protection equipment, training of non-certified workers, and documentation. Includes course exam. Successful completion of this course and award of the training certificate qualifies the trainee as a Certified Renovator.
Students must bring proof of full certification (from the last 5 years) to the class.
