The City of Cedar Rapids Housing Services Division offers both Initial and Refresher Lead Safe Renovator certification classes.
In April 2010, regulations impacting renovation work in pre-1978 residential housing (target housing) and child occupied facilities became effective nation-wide. These rules require at least one certified lead-safe renovator per renovation, and the use of specific lead-safe work practices. In Iowa, the Iowa Department of Public Health has the authority to implement this program.
The Lead Certification Program requires training and certification of lead-safe renovators. it also requires certification of the firms that employ certified lead professionals.
Who should attend?
Any firm that performs renovation, repair, and paint projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities and preschools built before 1978 must use certified Lead Safe Renovators.
