Lead Risk Assessor Refresher
February 1 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm| $200.00
This EPA / State of Michigan accredited course is required for all lead risk assessors every three (3) years to keep certified. This is a one day (8 hour) course refreshing students on the fundamentals of performing lead risk assessments within “targeted housing” or “child occupied facilities”. The course topics include: reviewing lead inspection information, detailed review of homes to identify potential lead risks, a review of dust, soil, and water sampling from the inspector course, methods followed to evaluate hazards and paint within the building, developing strategies to allow building owners to reduce lead exposures and report generation.
Additionally, this course will assist students on keeping up with the current changes within the industry and new requirements from federal or state regulations. Includes a course exam. Students must currently be certified through an EPA approved program as both a Lead Inspector and Risk Assessor and must take both refresher classes (inspector and risk assessor) to remain certified as a Risk Assessor. Upon completion of this course, students will send their training certificate and fees to the MDCH – Lead and Healthy Homes Section to take the third-party certification exam to continue their State / EPA certification as Lead Inspector – Risk Assessor. Do not let your Lead Risk Assessor license expire! The Lead Risk Assessor refresher training provides information for those individuals who wish to perform lead-based paint Risk Assessment or Lead Hazard Screening services.
This class meets EPA’s training requirements and will prepare students to perform on-site inspections, take samples, determine the severity of lead hazards, and develop options for eliminating those hazards. EPA requires that an individual wishing to be certified as a Risk Assessor must first successfully complete the Lead Inspector class, and meet the necessary education and experience requirements. This workshop prepares you to immediately apply your knowledge to the field, with real-world examples from experienced instructors.
