Lead-Safe Contractor Training

Receive your RRP certification in one day

As a contractor, you play a critical role in helping to prevent lead exposure. Ordinary renovation and maintenance activities can create toxic lead dust that can harm your customers, workers and even yourself. But by following the EPA’s lead- safe work practices, you can prevent lead hazards and protect families in our community.

On October 26, 2021, Pittsburgh City Council passed a Lead Safety Law to protect the public from the dangers of lead-based hazards. Beginning May 29, 2022, contractors applying for a new or renewal General Contractor license must provide their firm’s EPA Lead, Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) certification. 

In partnership with Professional Training Associates, Inc. and Zack Academy, Inc., one day training sessions are available now. Questions? Please refer to this RRP FAQ.
