Frequent Questions

I took my renovator training class on May 1st, 2010. On April 16th, 2015, EPA published a Federal Register notice (80 FR 20444) that extended the training expiration for certain renovators. My training expiration was extended, will I get a new course comp

No, EPA will not be issuing new course completion certificates or other documentation to renovators saying that their training expiration was extended. If an employer or customer of yours has questions about the training expiration extension you can print out this guidance and show it to them, or have them call the National Lead Information Center at 800-424-5323. The table below shows which renovators are eligible for the extension and when their training will expire.
