MVCC Offers Non-Credit Training for Lead Renovators

MVCC’s Center for Corporate and Community Education is now accepting registrations for courses in Lead Safety for Spring 2013.

Lead Renovators Initial Course
As of April 22, 2010, all contractors or landlords working in pre-1978 housing, schools, or child-occupied facilities are required to obtain an EPA firm license and have their workers trained in lead-safe work practices. MVCC is offering these courses which are accredited by the EPA and fulfill the requirements for lead safe training.

This 8-hour initial certification course is required for any renovators without previous training to become a certified lead-safe contractor. Bring a pen, pencil and paper; all other materials are provided. The course concludes with a 25-question exam. Students should also bring a lunch. All classes take place from 8:15am – 5:15pm. Registration cost is $195.
