If you’re a contractor that took the RRP Initial course, then you will need to come back before your 3-year anniversary to take the half-day RRP Refresher course. In other words, if you took the RRP initial class on Jan. 15, 2019, then you will need to take the Refresher class before Jan. 15, 2022 for your re-certification. IMPORTANT: If your certification lapses beyond your 3-year anniversary, you will need to take the 8-hour Initial Certification class once again.

This refresher training course was developed by the EPA in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to train renovation, repair and painting contractors how to work safely in housing with lead-based paint, and comply with the EPA’s Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Rule and HUD’s Lead-Safe Housing Rule.


Attendees learn how to properly work within the RRP Rule on pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities that have tested positive for lead-based paint.


By passing the 25-question multiple-choice test, attendees will be given a new certificate of completion that is required when applying to conduct business in the State of Georgia.

This course is supplemental and not primary for career development.
