This EPA/State of Michigan course is required for all lead inspectors every 3 years to maintain their certification. This one-day course will refresh attendees on the fundamentals of performing lead inspections in “target housing” (pre-1978 dwellings) or “child occupied facilities” within the State of Michigan.
The course topics include characteristics and uses of lead-based paint, lead’s health effects on adults and children, types of lead-based paint housing components, identification of other lead-containing materials in housing, x-ray fluorescence (XRF) analysis, paint chip and dust wipe sampling methodologies, clearance examination procedures, and required documentation and report creation standards. Additionally, this course will assist attendees in keeping up with the current changes within the industry and new requirements from federal or state regulations.
Upon completion of this course, attendees must submit certificate and fees to the State of Michigan to renew their State certification as lead inspectors, and pass a third party (State) certification exam. Further, State regulations require lead inspectors to undergo XRF manufacturer training prior to conducting XRF analysis.
As per the Michigan Lead Abatement Act, any individual who wishes to test for lead-based paint in target housing and child-occupied facilities must maintain their State certification as a licensed lead inspector every 3 years. While the required applications are provided during the training course, the fees and required third party (State) licensing exam required for individuals are not included in the cost of the training course.Download link's provided will expire within a few days, but if you miss the opportunity to download, they will be provided in class.
