Now offering online lead RRP training!

LeadSafeAmerica.com online training option

Starting immediately, LeadSafeAmerica in conjunction with Indoor Environment Group and ComplyAbility is offering an online training option.

The online training component is completed through LeadSafeOnline. LeadSafeOnline provides a full online training, testing and performance tracking system. The full course includes 6 hours of online training plus 2 hours of hands on training. Completion of the course meets all current EPA lead RRP training requirements.

Individuals registering for this online course will complete twelve (12) training modules. Training is completed at their convenience and from anywhere there is access to the Internet. The online modules take approximately six (6) hours to complete and will vary from individual to individual based on the pace at which you view the modules.

Successful completion of RRP Training requires your participation in a 2-hour "hands-on" skills assessment class. In order to expand your options to more than just a few major cities, we hold classes regionally around the country based on demand. Some travel time may be involved and classes are subject to a minimum number of participants.

Program Costs

The cost for the "online" and the "hands-on" Lead Safe Work Practices training is $195.00 when attending an open enrollment hands-on training class. Additional fees may be required for onsite or custom hands-on classes.


Please contact Dave at LeadSafeAmerica (866-843-6059 or Email Dave) for more information.


Note: The EPA and possibly your state have firm licensing fees that are in addition to the training fee.  Visit http://www.epa.gov/lead/pubs/renovation.htm#contractors for more information.  The following states have been authorized by the EPA to run their own state programs:  Wisconsin, Iowa, North Carolina, Mississippi, Kansas, Rhode Island, Utah, Oregon and Massachusetts

The Advantage of Online Training

Online learning or e-learning is growing in popularity. It is a MUST for busy people today. Instead of sitting in uncomfortable chairs, in stuffy rooms, daydreaming or thinking about what you have to do when you return to work, you take the courses when you want, when you are ready.

The advantages of doing training online are many.

* Structured Approach (integrated course content built for the Internet)
* Convenience (do training anywhere you have access to the Internet)
* Efficiency (online training is to the point, no superfluous information or distractions)
* Instant Feedback (a testing component is included with each chapter)
* Ask Questions of a Certified Trainer Online (the comfort of asking questions without feeling awkward)
* Reduced Travel (do the majority of your training at home, a library, or the office)
* No Lost Productive Time (learn when you choose and get back to the job)
* Learn in a Non-Stressful Environment (you have control over your training experience)
* Eliminate Lost Wages (do training on your own time…evenings, weekends, etc.)
* Cost (instant online access to training manuals and forms eliminates the cost of buying books and your work schedule is uninterrupted)
* It’s Effective (It is a proven fact that most learners do not retain all of the training delivered in a classroom)
* Revisit Training When Needed (You have permanent access to the training, necessary forms and manuals)
* Better Training Effectiveness (one-on-one training online is vastly superior to a large classroom audience)

Why is Lead Safe Training Required?

Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued the final rule requiring the use of lead-safe practices and other actions aimed at preventing lead poisoning.

Under the EPA Lead Renovation Repair and Painting Rule (Lead RRP) contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in residential homes, apartments, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
