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.
  • When you enroll in a refresher course, you must submit a copy of your initial training certificate to the training provider.

What if I don’t have my 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.

Online refresher courses

  • If you're interested in an online refresher course, use the EPA's Accredited Lead-Based Paint Trainer Search page.  
  • Online Renovator refresher courses are only good for three years, since the course does not include a hands-on component. For more information, view the Code of Federal Regulations about this requirement.
  • For more information on the training requirements, including a description of the expiration dates for the Initial and Refresher Renovator courses, visit this EPA page and scroll down to "Training Requirements for Certified Renovators".

Do I get CCB continuing education credit for completing the lead paint courses?

Course descriptions

Renovation, Repair and Painting (RRP) Training

Initial RRP

  • Initial RRP training is an 8-hour course that includes hands-on training.
  • Course participants receive a completion certificate valid for 5 years.

Refresher RRP

  • Refresher RRP training is a 4-hour course that includes hands-on training and is available for individuals whose 5-year RRP training certificate has not yet expired.

Lead-based Paint Activities (LBPA) Training
(Lead abatement, inspection, and risk assessment)

Initial LBPA

  • The required number of hours for initial LBPA training courses varies by discipline as listed below.
    • Lead Inspector: 24 hours
    • Risk Assessor: 16 hours (prerequisite: Lead Inspector course certificate)
    • Abatement Worker: 16 hours
    • Supervisor: 32 hours
    • Project Designer: 16 hours
  • Course participants receive a completion certificate valid for 6 months. Within that 6 months after the certificate issuance date, an individual must submit a complete application to OHA  (and pass the state exam if applicable) for certification and be issued the OHA certificate. If an individual does not obtain the OHA certificate within the 6 months, they must retake the initial training and reapply for certification. 
    • Note that once an application is complete (includes documentation and payment described in the application instructions), allow one month for OHA to process the application materials and issue the certificate.
  • The OHA certificate is valid for 3 years.

Refresher LBPA

  • Refresher LBPA training is an 8-hour training course, which must be completed once per 3 years at a minimum. 
    • Note that if an individual's OHA certificate expires while holding only an expired training certificate (one that is 3 years or older), the individual would need to re-take the initial multi-day training.

For information about curriculum topics covered in each LBPA course, please review Oregon Administrative Rule 333-069 (and, by reference, 40 CFR 745.225).
