Looking for training courses?
Oregon Health Authority maintains a training calendar for Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) and Lead-based Paint Activities (LBPA) training courses.
Class schedules are subject to change. This list may not include all training courses. Please contact providers directly for more information on pricing, course availability and scheduling. Please note that even though a course is listed, it may be full. Contact the training provider directly to find out if space is still available.
Enrolling in a refresher course?
You MUST have a valid initial training certificate to be eligible for a refresher course. If your certificate expires before the date of the course you wish to take, you will need to take the initial class again. Anyone enrolling in a refresher course must submit a copy of your initial training certificate to the training provider.
If you're interested in an online refresher course, use the EPA "Find a Trainer" tool. Make sure to click the radio button for "E-Learning". Remember that an online refresher will only be good for three years, since the course does not include a hands-on component.
What if I don’t have my initial training certificate?
If you do not have your initial training certificate, contact the training provider that taught the initial course to obtain a copy. If you do not know the name of the training provider, call the Oregon Lead-based Paint Program for assistance at 971-673-0440.
