Must a certified lead abatement professional also become trained and certified to do renovation or repair work?
Yes. Because some skills are different (such as cleaning verification), renovation, repair, and painting (RRP) training and certification is required even if someone already has abatement certification. Please note that if you previously completed an eligible renovation training course before October 4, 2011, you may take the 4-hour refresher course instead of the 8-hour initial course from an accredited training provider to become a certified renovator.
