Being a General Contractor in Calif. I realize I need to be certified for
lead in renovations to any homes built prior to 1978.
I am going through the steps to procure this lead requirement.
First of all, I have to take a class which cost me 280.00
Then I have to pay the EPA 300.00 to fill out a form......I fill it out
online, and then send it in to the EPA with 300.00
I also have to take 2 days to go to Sacramento, stay in a motel, and on Mon.
take this lead class for 8 hours.
I realize the concerns with lead in construction.
I have for many years......
After all it was in gasoline......think about how much has been spread with
It occurs in brass fixtures...........
I feel that this is a bit out of hand with the fee's and the class etc.
A on-line class.......Video.........
A book with pictures and materials and tools listed....
Many things could have been done.
Imagine the cost run-up for this new ruling to older homes and that mostly
low income people might own.
These are a few of my concerns.....
