This is a Renovation, Repair and Painting Refresher Training course (RRP). The course is a 4-hour class and includes hands-on procedures and a required certification exam. Upon completion of the class and passing the course exam, your information is uploaded into the U.S. EPA’s database with your uniquely assigned Certified Renovator number. This certification is good for five years. You will receive a certificate in the mail with your unique number and photograph.
You must take a refresher class before the five year expiration date to keep your certification current. If your previous certificate has expired, you must retake the 8-hour training course.
