The Instructor-led course meets EPA or EPA-Authorized State training requirements for those individuals that will prepare abatement project designs, occupant protection plans, and abatement reports. Training focuses on target housing, such as child-occupied facilities and multi-family housing, and other large-scale abatement projects such as public buildings. The certified Lead Designer can interpret lead inspection or risk assessment reports and develop plans, specifications, and project procedures for lead abatement projects. The design process includes occupant notification and protection, clean-up and clearance, and the final abatement report. Each attendee must pass a final exam in order to qualify for certification.
