Protect Your Residents -- Lead Training Courses Available

In partnership with the New Jersey Department of Community Affairs and the New Jersey Business & Industry Association, the Consortium of Community Colleges is offering a comprehensive series of training courses to meet the federal and NJ state training requirements for workers disturbing lead-based paint. Apartment firms and workers performing renovation, repair and painting projects in pre-1978 housing must be certified and follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination. Firms must use certified renovators who are trained by EPA approved providers to follow lead-safe work practices.

Renovators include renovation contractors, maintenance workers in multi-family housing, painters and other specialty trades.

The training through the NJ community colleges has been subsidized by the NJ Department of Community Affairs to reduce the training costs for NJ contractors and their workers. The training has been packaged to provide 4 certificates to attendees in one combined 20 hour class for the low subsidized tuition of $190 per person plus $72 for text and materials.

The combined package includes:

•EPA Model Renovator Initial Certificate
•EPA Dust Sampling Technician Certificate
•NJ DCA Rules & Regulations Certificate
•OSHA Hazardous Communications Certificate
