The course covers how to work safely in housing with lead-based paint and comply with EPA's RRP rule and HUD's Lead Safe Housing rule. Participants will be Certified Renovators upon completion of the 8-hour workshop, which includes 2 hours of hands-on learning.

The trainer will be Jayne Windham of Livable Housing. Jayne has over 30 years of professional experience in affordable housing and community development programs. A nationally-recognized trainer and consultant, she develops and teaches courses in housing construction & rehabilitation, lead hazard control, and healthy homes. Jayne is a credentialed Healthy Homes Specialist, licensed general contractor, holds a B.S. in Engineering Management, and has also worked in construction management and weatherization. Her colleague and spouse, Armand Magnelli, will assist her with the workshop.

IMPORTANTJayne is authorized by the EPA to train in 37 states (including Tennessee). Currently, there are 14 states and 1 tribe that are authorized by EPA to operate their own RRP programs in lieu of the federal program. Those states have their own training curriculum and authorize their own trainers, and may have additional requirements beyond the EPA curriculum.

Those working in Alabama, Delaware, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas, Massachusetts, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Rhode Island, Utah, Washington, Wisconsin, or in the Bois Forte Tribe should contact the respective state/tribe for more information about their training and certification requirements. If you serve one of these states, visit https://www.epa.gov/lead/renovation-repair-and-painting-program-firm-certification#1,  and look under “Determine if You Apply to EPA or Your State, Tribe or Territory” for your individual state/tribe requirements. Many of the states do have EPA reciprocity, or require only a supplemental course for local regulations.

The "Certified Renovator" designation is good for 5 years, and then can be renewed for another 5 years by taking a 4-hour refresher course. The person who satisfactorily completes this course & exam will automatically become a certified renovator under the EPA; the agency where they work also needs to be certified, either by the EPA or the state. Learn moreAdditional information about this will be shared during the workshop.

Thank you Stanley Black & Decker for sponsoring this workshop!
