Lead Abatement Training
Lead abatement training is required for contractors and their workers performing lead abatement work, which includes any measure designed to permanently eliminate lead-based paint hazards. The United States Environmental Protection Agency regulations provide a framework for lead abatement, risk assessment, and inspections.
The GRCC program for lead abatement will prepare individuals for the State of Michigan lead certification as a Lead Abatement Worker and a Lead Abatement Supervisor.
Training consists of core lead basics and abatement supervisor which prepares individuals to take the State of Michigan test. State of Michigan certification cards are valid for one year and you may renew (and pay fees) your certification each year. The State of Michigan requires that every three years you take a one-day refresher course and reapply to take the state exam.
Prerequisite: High School Diploma or GED
