This course was developed by the U.S Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to train renovation, repair, and painting contractors how to work safely in housing with lead-based paint and comply with EPA's Renovation, Repair, and Painting (RRP) Rule, and HUD's Lead Safe Housing Rule. The audience for this course includes renovators, remodelers, painters, maintenance personnel, and any other workers removing or modifying painted surfaces. They likely will be taking the course to obtain EPA certification as a Certified Renovator, which will enhance their credentials as private contractors and also satisfy HUD requirements for interim controls training in Federally-assisted target housing. As the trainer, you will want to tailor the course to highlight information and exercises that best meet audience needs. Although customizing the course to your audience is appropriate to a certain degree, the HUD-related material should be taught to all trainees, even if they are not currently working in Federallyassisted target housing units. All renovators are potential HUD contractors and should know and understand this information. The curriculum consists of an introduction and eight instructional modules. Most of the modules include interactive exercises. The timing of the course will depend on the choices the trainer makes about activities, and how much time is needed to discuss state and local requirements. Two possible course schedules for a one-day delivery are provided below. The second schedule concentrates most of the exercises in a single session towards the end of the day, before the review and test. The course can also be delivered in several shorter sessions.
