How long do RRP Firm and Renovator Certifications last?
To maintain their certification, individual renovators and firms must be re-certified by EPA every five years. A firm must submit to EPA a completed "Application for Firms," signed by an authorized agent of the firm, and pay the correct amount of fees. Individual renovators must successfully complete a refresher training course provided by an accredited training provider.
That is a direct quote from the EPA's Compliance Guide (
Small Entity Compliance Guide to Renovate Right: EPA's Lead-Based Paint Renovation, Repair and Painting Program: September 2011 (PDF)
) and the need to re-certify probably has slipped the minds of the thousands of Certified Firms and Certified Renovators for RRP. June 2015 seems to be far away, but as most of us remember the mad rush to complete training, it's never too early to get prepared.
