Lead Safety for Remodeling, Repair & Painting [RRP]


Dutchess BOCES Adult Learning Institute [ALI], in collaboration with the Putnam & Dutchess County Departments of Health is pleased to offer One Day EPA Certification classes entitled Lead Safety for Remodeling, Repair, and Painting (RRP).  We also offer half day refresher classes for persons needing to renew their certifications.

Effective April 22, 2010, The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires that all landlords, contractors, property management firms, or handymen who do renovation, remodeling or painting work, in pre-1978 housing or child occupied facilities, complete Lead Safety for Remodeling, Repair and Painting (RRP) training.

EPA requires that at least one individual from each company or crew complete the Lead Safety for Remodeling, Repair and Painting (RRP) training. That individual is then responsible for insuring that the other employees on site are trained in lead safe work practices and that these practices are in use when and where appropriate. Please note that EPA has been rather busy enforcing the RRP provisions.

Individuals attending RRP training will have their picture taken as part of EPA’s certification process. Certifications will be mailed to students.

New class dates will be added accordingly. Registrations for each class session must be paid in full one week prior to the class.

If you have any questions as to whether you or your company need this training please go to the Dutchess County Health Department Website (the link is external) .
