The two day Maryland Lead Maintenance and Repainting Supervisor initial course satisfies training requirements for the state of Maryland and is primarily directed at project managers, maintenance supervisors, and owners of rental properties, which may have lead-painted surfaces. The course is especially targeted at those who supervise projects as part of Maryland’s Lead Risk Reduction Program. The first day of this course covers the worker safety portion of the material related to the dangers of lead exposure, controlling lead exposure, and lead-safe work practices. The second day involves a thorough investigation of the state and federal regulations, a group project-planning activity, and a written test on the important concepts.
Upon successful completion of the class, students are issued a Maryland ID card and a certificate of training. Training certification is valid for two years. An accreditation application must be submitted to MDE upon completion of the class along with proof of training and the appropriate fee for this discipline. These steps are required to become an “accredited” Maintenance and Repainting Supervisor in Maryland.
This class has been approved by the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE) and is required for supervisors who oversee repairs, maintenance or remodeling activities on certain Maryland properties where lead-based paint may be disturbed.
