Vermont Lead-Safe Renovator Classes

On October 1, 2022, the State of Vermont received the authority to administer the Federal EPA’s Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Program. The Federal RRP program sets the RRP training requirements for contractors who work on housing and child-occupied buildings built before 1978 due to the likelihood that the buildings contain LEAD-BASED PAINT. The RRP training includes these topics: notification to occupants and owners of lead work and hazards, lead-safe work practices, cleaning, and recordkeeping. To perform RRP work in Vermont, you now need both the Vermont Lead-Safe Renovation, Repair, Painting, and Maintenance (RRPM) firm, and supervisor licenses. To receive the RRPM supervisor license, you need to take this Federal RRP training. Learn more about these licensing requirements here:

Please note: The Vermont RRPM program also requires RRPM supervisor applicants to take the Vermont Lead Poisoning Prevention, Inspection, Repair, and Cleaning ((RC) Practices training in addition to this RRP training. The Vermont IRC Practices used to be called Essential Maintenance Practices (EMPs). The IRC Practices are a set of inspection and cleaning activities required in rental housing properties and daycares to make sure that lead paint will not become a health hazard for occupants. Even if you do not plan to work in rental properties and child cares, you still need this online training to receive the Vermont Lead-Safe RRPM supervisor license. The IRC Practices training is offered online in a self-paced format and takes a couple of hours to complete. Learn more about this training by clicking here.
