LEAD RENOVATION, REPAIR & PAINTING CERTIFICATION TRAINING
The Home Builders Association of Marion & Polk Counties offers regularly scheduled live classes in Salem for Lead Renovation, Repair & Painting (RRP) certification.
Under federal Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) rules being enforced by both the Oregon Construction Contractors Board (CCB) and Department of Human Services, contractors and others performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and schools built before 1978 must use certified renovators who are trained by EPA-approved training providers and follow lead-safe work practices.
All individuals performing activities that disturb painted surfaces must be certified renovators or have been trained by a certified renovator. A certified renovator must also be assigned to each renovation and perform all of the EPA-mandated responsibilities of a certified renovator.
Fines for non-compliance are up to $5,000 per day, per jobsite.
Certification is valid for five years, and under EPA rules, certified renovators must take a four-hour refresher course prior to the expiration of their certification to avoid taking the full eight-hour class once again.
Classes are held at the Home Builders Association of Marion & Polk Counties offices, 2075 Madrona Ave SE, Ste 100, in Salem (next to Gilgamesh Brewing).
Full Day Initial Course
Our Full-Day Initial Class is for individuals who have never been certified before, or have let their certification lapse. Students successfully completing the class will receive their certified renovator certification.
All classes are held at the Home Builders Association of Marion & Polk Counties, 2075 Madrona Ave SE, Ste 100, in Salem. Classes are from 8:30am - 5:00pm.
Half-Day Refresher Course
The Half-Day Refresher Class is for current certified renovators who need to renew their certification. Please note that the 8 hour class certifications are valid for five years, and if your certification has expired by even one day, you will need to complete the Full-Day Initial Course once again.
Please contact the Oregon Home Builders Association for more information on the Refresher Class. The phone number is (503) 378-9066.
