Renovation activities that disturb lead-based paint can create dangerous lead paint dust. The purpose of lead dust clearance is to determine if the area is safe for re-occupancy.
In order to ensure the safety of the tenants for any renovation project in older housing, it is highly recommended that a Dust Sampling Technician provides their services to ensure that proper lead dust cleaning procedures have been followed.
This Lead Dust Sampling Technician certification allows individuals to conduct clearance tests following renovation projects to ensure that proper lead dust cleaning procedures have been followed. This class must be taken in person, as there is a “Hands-on” training block of instruction during the afternoon portion of the training. The course will conclude with a 25-question technician certification exam. Students must receive a 80% or better to pass the course and receive their certificate. Certification is good for 4 years.
