EPA Model Lead-Based Paint Abatement Worker Training Course

Front cover of Instructor's Manual
March 2004

Below are links for the English and Spanish versions of the lead-based paint abatement worker model training course materials. For each language, there are three documents: the instructor manual (in PDF format), the student manual (in PDF format), and the presentations (in MS PowerPoint format).

Training firms accredited based on previous versions of the model training course should have replaced the existing materials with the revised English version by September 1, 2004. Accredited training firms that use their own curricula should have updated their courses to reflect the changes in the EPA materials. Firms accredited to offer Spanish language training should have also started offering the new Spanish version of the abatement worker training by September 1, 2004.
