EPA Extends Renewal To 2016


Those of use who were certified in 2010 have another year to renew. Rather than 5 years, we have 6 years.
Guess we have to take that course again.

I'm back and forth on this. I guess I'll recertify.

For clarification, the firm certification with EPA still needs to be renewed. It's the individual certification (refresher course) that is extended.

I give up on the lead work . Not going to renew my license . I took and did the class . Never did a lead job with it . I stayed away cause all the legal paper work we should keep and not make a mistake.

Re: EPA Extends Renewal To 2016


The disturbing part of this, from what I read in Remodeling Mag this month is that the program will ramp up inspections and because they are not making money they changed the 3 year record keeping requirement to 5 year so they have more time to go back and audit for revenue.....I guess.

I also dont like that they are giving the EPA powers like the IRS. You worry you get some "do gooder" kid out of college enforcing this stuff with no real world experience.

So now I hope I get credit via time....at least for the renewal now that they extended it by a year.
