The purpose of this document is to recommend criteria for site assessor training curricula for assessors of laboratories that analyze Pb in paint, dust and soil. These recommendations will form the basis of the training curricula that EPA will establish for accrediting organizations which seek recognition by NLLAP through an MOU. Because of the need to maintain flexibilty, this curriculum is intended to be a working guideline rather than a program outlining specific requirements. At this time, there are no standard EPA-validated analysis methods for Pb in paint, soil, and deposited dust (including wipe samples and vacuumed samples). In addition, there are no standardized wipe-sampling media. As standardized methods are developed, they will be incorporated into the training program and replace some of the generic sections in the current program.
