Our RRP Trainings
We offer the following Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) training options. Read through to decide which option is best for you. We are certified by the Rhode Island Department of Health as a provider for both the 8-hour initial and 4-hour refresher RRP training.
RRP Initial Training (8 hours)
Interactive RRP training led by a skilled instructor. This course is designed to teach contractors and other workers to use lead-safe work practices when disturbing paint on homes built before 1978, and how to comply with the Renovation, Repair, and Painting Rule (state and federal law) in Rhode Island. Refreshments and lunch are provided.
**This is a two day course. You must go to both the 14th and 15th date to complete the course**
RRP Refresher Training (4 hours)
This class is incorporated into the second half of the 8-hour initial RRP class. The 4-hour RRP Refresher training is designed for two different groups of people: RI contractors who need to renew their Lead-Safe Remodeler/License, and non-RI contractors who need RRP certification from EPA and have previous certification in lead-safe work practices, as detailed below.
If you work in Rhode Island, you may take the Refresher if you already hold a valid Lead-Safe Remodeler/Renovator, Lead Abatement Worker, or Lead Supervisor License from the RI Department of Health. If you work in Rhode Island and do not have one of these licenses, you are not yet eligible to take the Refresher and must successfully complete the 8-hour Initial RRP training instead.
If you work in a state other than RI, you may take the Refresher if you have successfully completed one of the following training courses. Be sure to check with the state government where you are working to find out whether there are additional requirements you need to meet.
- Abatement worker or supervisor course accredited by EPA, or an EPA authorized State or Tribal program.
- Joint EPA-HUD Lead Safety for Remodeling, Repair and Painting, 2003 (EPA 747-B-03-001).
- EPA Model Training Course Minimizing Lead-Based Paint Hazards During Renovation, Remodeling, and Painting, 2000 (EPA 747-B-00-005).
- HUD Addressing Lead-Based Paint Hazards During Renovation, Remodeling and Rehabilitation in Federally Owned and Assisted Housing Course.
- HUD Lead-Based Paint Training for Remodelers and Renovators Course.
Proof of the above certification is required to take the Refresher training.
**This section of the course will be for the 15th ONLY**
