If I complete an EPA-accredited abatement course and receive EPA certification where am I eligible to work?

Answer

EPA runs the Federal abatement program under Subpart L in all States and Indian Tribes that have not received authorization under Subpart Q to operate their own programs.  If you are certified by EPA under the lead-based paint abatement program you are eligible to work in all EPA administered jurisdictions.  Here’s a link to the current list of jurisdications where EPA runs the lead abatement program --https://www.epa.gov/lead/lead-based-paint-activities-professionals.
