The Lead Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (RRP) course is an Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) / US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) certification course designed for all workers that 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 age six are present on a regular basis.

The RRP course is intended for students who have no prior knowledge of lead-based paint, but the certification is required regardless of experience. 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 4-hour Refresher course every 5 years.

The Initial Certification course has 8 contact hours. Classroom training (including a written exam) requires approximately 6 hours of the total time for the course, and 2 hours are set aside for Hands-on Skill Sets in the Lab involving 11 skills evaluated by the instructor. It can qualify as 4 continuing education units (CEU) toward Home Energy Professional Recertification.

Completion of the course will register your name with EPA as a Certified Lead; Renovation, Repair, and Painting Professional. The company you work for, whether it is a multi-person operation, or you are simply a sole proprietor, will still need to register as a Certified Firm with EPA. To complete that application, go to EPA's online Certified Firm Registration page at www.epa.gov/lead/getcertified.
