Lead Safe Work Practices Classes

Become EPA Certified Renovators

Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) training classes are sponsored by the New York City Department of Health and Mental Hygiene's Lead Poisoning Prevention Program (LPPP) for free.

In addition to the RRP curriculum, the requirements for lead-safe work practices under NYC's Local Law 1 are taught. If you successfully complete this class, you will be eligible to become an EPA Certified Renovator!
