Additionally, this training will review federal requirements surrounding lead based paint, including the April 22, 2010 requirement that all renovators who work in homes built pre 1978 and disturb more than six square-feet of lead paint be RRP certified. This is a comprehensive introduction to the HOME Program and federal lead based paint requirements.
