EPA certification renewal date coming up in 2015

from National Association of the Remodeling Industry

NARI wants members to start thinking about renewing the Environmental Protection Agency lead-certified renovator certificate to work on pre-1978 homes. For those who received the certification in the first year of the Lead Renovation, Repair & Painting program, 2015 is the renewal year of that five-year certification. In order to get renewed, remodelers will have to take a refresher course. Currently, that includes hands-on training, although the EPA is looking into removing that requirement.

If you are working in one of the following states — Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Washington or Wisconsin — you will need to check with your state-specific programs, using the hyperlinks included.

If you are a certified lead renovator — either through EPA or the state — don’t forget to send NARI a copy of your certificate to be listed as a certified lead renovator on the NARI website. You can email it to or fax it to (847) 298-9225.
