Free EPA Certified Lead Renovator Training Course

Delaware County Public Health will sponsor another free EPA Certified Lead Renovator eight hour training course on Thursday, May 31. The training will be held at The Carriage House behind 76 Main Street in Stamford. ConTrax, LLC, an EPA-approved training provider, will conduct the class. Common renovation activities like sanding, cutting, and demolition can create hazardous lead dust and chips by disturbing lead-based paint, which can be harmful to adults and children. To protect against this risk, on April 22, 2008, EPA issued the Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule. It requires that firms (which include public and private entities, landlords, self-employed persons, etc.) that advertise to and/or perform renovation, repair, and/or painting projects that disturb lead based paint in pre-1978 homes, child care facilities and schools be certified by the USEPA and that they use certified renovators who are trained by EPA approved training providers to follow lead-safe work practices.

This class, sponsored by Delaware County Public Health, will include all course materials, manual, refreshments, lunch and certificate of completion. Free tuition offered on a first come basis, with preference given to Delaware County residents, businesses, rental property owners, home improvement contractors and their employees.

Space is limited for this onetime class. To reserve a seat call ConTrax at 607-588-6640, or email For more information go to
