If a student in a renovator training course is unable to read and understand English, may the exam be read to them in their native language?

No. Separate course accreditations are required for each renovation course a training provider offers that is in a language other than English. Courses presented in a language other than English must use instructor manuals, exams, and other course materials in that language that have been reviewed by EPA as part of the accreditation process for the course.
