EPA Lead RRP Certification Classes
Suncoast Safety Council now offers EPA Lead Paint Certification Classes for the Tampa Bay, Clearwater, St. Petersburg, Sarasota, New Port Richey and Bradenton areas. All training will be conducted by an EPA approved training provider.

What is EPA's New RRP Rule?
The Lead-Base Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule (RRP) is a federal regulatory program affecting anyone who “disturbs” painted surfaces where lead may be present. If you work around construction built prior to 1978 you must now have a Lead Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Certification or you could be fined upwards of $37,000.

To comply with the regulatory requirements of this rule you must:

Lead Manual

• Submit an application to the EPA to certify your firm (must renew every 5 years).
• At least one company employee must attend an 8-hour Renovators Certification Course, and attend a refresher course every 5 years.
• Certified Renovator Course students must demonstrate “hands-on” capability and pass a written exam.
• Provide owners, tenants, and child-care facilities with a copy of EPA’s lead hazard information pamphlet:“Renovate Right: Important Lead Hazard Information for Families, Child Care Providers, and Schools.”

Who Needs to Take the EPA Lead Certification Course?
