The EPA Updates Lead Training

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently updated its website and resources for trainers who offer courses in Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) and in the Lead-based Paint Activities Program. With these updates, the goal of the EPA is to improve training in these fields. The goal of this training is to reduce or prevent lead exposure, including lead exposure in overburdened communities.

The EPA has reorganized its RRP homepage and provided links to updated model courses, RRP resources for trainers, and guidance on accreditation

Lead-based paint is very common in homes and buildings built before 1978. When renovation, repair, painting and lead abatement projects are done correctly, they can reduce or eliminate exposure to lead for both the workers completing the projects and the building's occupants. So it is important that workers receive proper training and trainers are knowledgeable on the most current work practices.

META Online Classes

META is dedicated to providing comprehensive and up-to-date training in lead, as well as asbestos, mold, and OSHA safety training. At META, we offer a 4-hour RRP Renovator Refresher course that is online. This course covers the health effects of exposure to lead-based paint and reviews safe work practices. META's RRP course also covers EPA and HUD regulations, record keeping, and other topics. 

Completion of this class leads to a 3-year certificate that is valid in 36 states. To renew your certificate at the end of this 3 year period, the EPA requires an in-person refresher course. META offers this and it satisfies the hands-on portion of the training.

You can take our online classes at your own pace and fit the course within your schedule. Sign up on our website today!
