EPA News Release: Renovator Training Expiration Extended

EPA has extended the training expiration date for many certified renovators. This was done so if the proposed changes of January 2015 are finalized, many more renovators will be able to take advantage of those changes. Affected expiration dates are based on when the previous course was taken (see table below).

Note: The extensions do not apply to EPA Lead-Safe Firm Certifications which must be re-submitted every 5 years.

Here is a summary of the new deadlines to renew the Lead Renovator Training Certification:
