Please make sure you understand the implications and requirements needed for you or your firm to comply. Though the extension applies to renovators, it does NOT apply to firm certifications.

Firms who knowingly or willingly violate the RRP Program requirements could result in penalties of up to $10,000 per day, per violation and/or face imprisonment. Renovators have a role to play in preventing lead poisoning. Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting and demolition can create hazardous lead dust with chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to both children and adults. This 6-hour refresher training course, which is required every 5 years, is for individuals who have previously completed the initial Certified Renovator Lead Certification in compliance with the Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) rule. The training will refresh RRP contractors in how to work safely in housing and child-occupied facilities with lead-based paint and to teach them how to comply with both EPA’s RRP Rule and the Washington State Department of Commerce’s Lead Safe Housing Rule. Participants will learn lead safe work practices and how to work safely and effectively. Students will also review the information that was provided to them in the initial RRP Certified Renovator training course, and be provided with current and up-to-date information regarding regulatory changes, changes in state-of-the-art work practices, as well as other changes to the RRP Certified Renovator discipline.
