YOU ARE INTERIM CERTIFIED FOR 6 MONTHS UPON COMPLETING YOUR TRAINING COURSE. 

You must complete the application process, including the third party exam (if required for your discipline) within six months after completing your course - in other words, before the expiration date of your interim certification. Submit your application for certification to EPA within 30 days of completing your initial training course so that you have plenty of time to take the third party exam and ensure that your application is complete before your interim certification expires. If you do not pass the exam within six months, your interim certification will expire and you will no longer be able to work.


 
Step 2: Apply for your certification on-line

 

You must have the following materials available in order to apply:
PDF copy of your course completion certificate.

Passport photograph (JPG format preferred).  No hats or dark glasses.

Credit card, debit card, or information needed to complete an ACH payment of the applicable fee.

PDF copies of evidence that you meet all of the education, experience, and training requirements for the discipline (e.g., academic transcripts, resume, and training course completion certificates).

 
If you are already certified by an EPA-authorized program in a particular discipline, and you want to obtain Federal certification, you will be required to submit the following in your online application to EPA:
PDF copy of your currently valid certificate (license/permit) from the authorized State or Tribe.

Passport photograph (JPG format preferred).

Credit card, debit card, or information needed to complete an ACH payment of the applicable fee.

You do not need to take an EPA-accredited initial training course or the third party exam.

 

Step 3:  Take EPA exam, if applicable

 
If you are applying for certification as an Inspector, Risk Assessor, or Supervisor, EPA will send you a letter that instructs you how to register for and take the required third party exam for that discipline. If you are applying for certification as a Project Designer or Worker, EPA will begin processing your application as soon as it is complete.

 

Step 4:  Renew your certification every 3 years.

 

NOTE: EPA requires your firm (in addition to you individually) to be certified.  This is also done online and can be completed at any time.  This MAY BE DONE prior to you taking your course.

 

Remember, there are two types of required certifications – certified individuals must work for certified firms when performing lead-based paint activities.
