The Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP) course is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)/U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) certification course designed for all workers who disturb painted surfaces in housing and child-occupied facilities built prior to 1978, including renovation contractors, maintenance workers in multi-family housing, painters and other specialty trades. Under the rule, child-occupied facilities are defined as residential, public or commercial buildings where children under six years of age are present on a regular basis.

In the Intitial RRP course, students learn how to assess and work with lead-based paint hazards in a way that is safe and constructive for themselves and others. To maintain their certification, students must complete a four-hour refresher course every five years. This refresher course meets the renewal requirement. It has 4 contact hours and can qualify as 2 continuing education units (CEU) toward HEP Recertification
