Anyone who performs renovations, repairs, or painting in pre-1978 housing or child-occupied facilities must be EPA Lead Safe Certified. Individuals and firms that are not certified could face fines of up to $37,500 per day. Positive Energy Environmental provides this course on multiple days to meet the individual needs of their students. They offer the course once a month so that students who miss the chance to take the course always have another option in the near future.

This course is required by the EPA for anyone performing work with lead in pre-1978 homes or facilities. The Lead Renovator Certification Initial course is 8 hours in length and includes both EPA-approved lead safety training and certification. Any contractor performing qualifying work must employ at least one Certified Renovator who has successfully completed this training, in addition to being registered as a Lead Safe Certified Firm with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The course concludes with a 25 question EPA-certification exam.
