RRP Training




Alchemy Lead Management has been granted accreditation by the EPA to engage in lead-based paint training for the Renovation, Repair and Painting Program pursuant to 40 CFR Part 745, Subpart L (73 FR 21691, April 22, 2008). The accreditation allows the Renovator Initial and Refresher Courses to be offered in English.




As of April 22, 2010, persons performing renovation, repair and painting (RRP) work for compensation that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. All renovation, repair and painting activities subject to the RRP rule must be completed by a Certified Firm and have a Certified Renovator assigned to the project.


To become a Certified Renovator, an individual must successfully complete an EPA-approved 8-hour training course, including an exam, from an EPA-accredited training provider. Renovators then receive certification to conduct Renovation, Repair & Painting activities pursuant to Section 402 of the Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) (15 U.S.C. 2682). No further application to the EPA is required. A Certified Renovator must take a four-hour refresher course before expiration of certification to be recertified or retake the initial certification training if the certification has already expired.

Neither the Initial nor the Refresher course is a lead abatement course to address removal, encapsulation or enclosure of lead-based paint or lead-based hazards. Performing lead abatement work requires additional specialized training and State licensure. It should also be noted that the RRP rule differs to OSHA requirements for Lead work – attendees are encouraged to contact their local OSHA offices to ensure full compliance with OSHA regulations.
