Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule Model Training Courses

EPA has developed three training courses to provide instruction to individuals seeking certification as a renovator or dust sampling technician: initial and refresher training for Renovators, and initial training for Dust Sampling Technicians. Training providers seeking accreditation to teach refresher training for Dust Sampling Technicians must develop their own course and submit it with their application for accreditation.

Electronic-Learning Format Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule Model Training Courses

EPA has also developed electronic-learning (e-learning) model courses for the Initial Renovator and Lead Dust Sampling Technician courses. EPA is not planning to develop either a renovator or dust sampling technician refresher e-learning curriculum at this time. Training providers may develop their own e-learning refresher courses and submit the alternative course with their application for review. All applicants must include a Quality Control (QC) plan. The QC plan must also include an Internet Web address where the E-learning course content can be reviewed and audited. The QC plan must include the Web address and a user name and password that EPA can use to access the course that the trainer has developed whether using their own curriculum or using the EPA E-learning curriculum. EPA cannot process or review applications that do not include a web address at which the course can be reviewed. The QC plan Requirements are specified here: Electronic-Learning Course Component Specifications (PDF) .

Expedited Approval Process for E-Learning for Certain Training Providers

EPA has developed an expedited process for training providers with an existing EPA accreditation to teach the initial renovator RRP course. This process allows accredited trainers to amend their accreditations in order to offer an electronic learning (e-learning) course component that has already been reviewed by EPA. A list of organizations with previously reviewed courses appears below. Through this process, EPA will issue to the training provider a separate accreditation number specifying that the provider is accredited for e-learning. This process only allows the applicant to add e-learning as a new delivery method for the in-person lecture material.  The expedited process may not be used by training providers to make other changes to their accreditation, e.g., it does not allow for changes to hands-on activities, student-to-teacher ratio, facility information, or permanent location vs. traveling trainer location. To make these changes, please contact the appropriate regional lead coordinator. Learn more.

Courses from the Following Organizations Have Been Previously Reviewed by EPA
