Lead Renovation, Repair and Painting (LRRP) Refresher Courses

The EPA requires that all certified renovators enroll in a 4-hour refresher class within five years of completing the initial 8-hour course.  With the majority of initial classes being taught during the end of 2009 and through the middle of 2010, thousands of contractors will need to enroll in refresher classes and renew their registration in the coming months to stay in compliance.
