They currently have 46 upcoming courses with GreenEDU for EPA Lead Certification and Asbestos Certification in Romulus, Michigan. Their courses include:

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and local government agencies require EPA Lead Certification in order to work on certain projects that may contain lead paint. You can avoid government fines as high as $37,500 by taking the training courses and getting certified. The EPA has issued multiple certifications required for all companies and individuals who work on projects that have lead paint present. The normal requirement for an EPA lead certification is that companies must register and pay a fee with EPA (or their local jurisdiction depending on where they are located), and individuals must take an EPA-approved lead paint training course. 

Those working with asbestos must take required asbestos training courses. Owing to its strength and resistance, asbestos has been used extensively in the construction industry for decades. Unfortunately, however, it is a highly hazardous material and a great potential health risk for those exposed to the substance. Therefore, per local and federal standards, any contractor involved with asbestos abatement projects must attend an accredited training program and get certified, or else face serious fines.

ETC Training Services provides certification for both of these fields on multiple days to meet the needs of the individuals they serve. To see all available courses and dates, check out their page
