Lead Paint Training

The actual training is being offered by a number of different trainers that have been certified by the EPA. One can find a list of certified trainers by going to the EPA’s website. The cost of the training ranges from approximately $100-300.00. The training consists of an eight-hour training with a test at the end. It teaches the lead containment procedures (sealing off the room with plastic, using a HEPA vacuum to clean up at the end of the day, etc.) as well as how to coordinate the work most effectively and maintain proper documentation. Those who are grandfathered in from a previous lead training will have to do a four hour-training.
