North Carolina’s new Lead Program for Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) went into effect January 1, 2010. This Program was initiated in response to new US EPA regulations intended to protect building occupants and children from lead-based paint hazards.
The new regulations apply to renovation, repair and painting work done for compensation in housing and child-occupied facilities built prior to 1978. They require firms performing renovations in these facilities to be certified by the NC Program, to use a certified renovator on each project, and to train their employees to follow lead-safe work practices.
Pre-registration and prepayment of tuition is required. For more information, please call (336) 386-3229 or (336) 386-3244.
