All renovators are now required to perform lead testing on homes built prior to 1978 using a variety of methods including lead check swabs and paint chip sampling. Your initial RRP course will certify you as a lead-safe certified worker for 5 years. 5 years from the date you completed your initial lead paint certification or before you will be required to complete a 4-hour refresher course.
Since February 17th, 2016 the EPA has allowed Certified renovators who have already received their initial certification to get their EPA certification renewal entirely online, making the RRP renewal process much more convenient.
