Purpose of Training
Training is required by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban
Development's (HUD) new lead-based paint regulation (24 CFR Part
35, et al.). This training is intended for those already inspecting
housing units. You may be a:
- Housing quality standards inspector
- Maintenance supervisor
- Building engineer
- Person with housing inspection duties
- Lead-based paint risk assessor
- Lead-based paint inspector
- Sampling technician
- Other building maintenance staff
This training will build on your existing building inspection and
assessment skills to perform visual assessments.
Why is this training important?
paint is a major source of lead in dust. This dust can be ingested
by children and other at risk groups and can poison them.
and eliminating deteriorated paint helps to reduce the risk that
lead poses to children.
