The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and other local and state regulatory agencies require EPA lead certification to work on projects that may have lead paint. There are several lead paint certification courses that you can attend to receive your EPA lead certification. If you do work or plan to do work that may impact lead paint, then you must be EPA lead certified or you could face fines of up to $37,500 per day, per infraction.
The EPA has developed several lead paint certification courses and only accredited training providers can teach them and issue EPA lead certification to students. Lead paint certification courses vary in length due to the complexity and detail of the training program.
ATC offers a large selection of locally provided EPA lead paint certification courses to meet your certification needs.
