BDN was one of the first organizations in the state of Michigan to become EPA-accredited to train for the RRP certification. The Rule applies to work performed in pre-1978 housing and child-occupied facilities, day care facilities, schools and rental property where more than 6 square feet of lead-based paint per room or 20 square feet outside will be disturbed by a worker or contractor who is being compensated for their work.

Certified Renovators looking to renew/refresh their RRP training to maintain individual and firm certifications with the EPA are asked to complete a 4-hour RRP Refresher class by either the 5 year or the 6-year anniversary of their initial training. The table above summarizes extensions that provide a sixth year by the date of initial training.
If a Certified Renovator needs to arrange training after the anniversary date has passed, retaking the initial class satisfies the requirement in full.
REFUND POLICY: BDN reserves the right to cancel or reschedule courses. In the event BDN finds it necessary to cancel a course, full refunds will be made if the student is unable to reschedule. Cancellations on the client/student’s part are subject to a $40 charge unless 48-hour notice is given. Requests for refunds may be made by telephone, but must be confirmed in writing to begin the actual refund through the accounting department. Class fees may be transferred to another participant or to an alternate course date without penalty; if a student misses a previously scheduled class, BDN asks that any refund or rescheduling be arranged within 24 hours of the missed first class day. The fees are assumed to be applied to a future class until a written refund request is received. At this point the refund would reflect a $40 charge.
