The Michigan Lead Abatement Act of 1998 requires certification of individuals engaged in lead-based paint activities in the state of Michigan. Certification requires the individual to meet minimum education and/or experience qualifications, successfully complete an accredited training course, and pass a third-party certification examination. Upon successful completion of the exam, a State of Michigan lead certification card will be issued to you. An individual is eligible to take the certification exam no more than three times within six months after receiving a course completion certificate. Certification is valid for three years with an annual maintenance fee. To be certified, you must take an approved training course, submit a Lead Professional Certification Application, and pass the State certification/third-party exam (usually scheduled twice each month). Once students have completed the application and paid all fees, the exam notice will be mailed to the individual.

Lead Abatement Certification is valid for three years--with an annual maintenance fee. Prior to the end of each three year period, a certification in good standing may be renewed by successful completion of an appropriate refresher course and third party exam. Upon successful completion of the exam, a State of Michigan lead certification card will be issued to you. An individual is eligible to take the certification exam no more than three times within six months after receiving a course completion certificate. The refresher training provides information on lead-based paint abatement and regulatory guidelines. It meets the EPA's training requirements for those individuals that will plan and/or oversee lead abatement work. A certified supervisor can perform all of the duties that a worker can. In addition, a supervisor is responsible for occupant safety during the abatement process and for writing the abatement plan. This course focuses on essential abatement procedures including site preparation, contract planning, project management, abatement implementation and record-keeping. Supervisor certifications are valid for three years. An annual certification fee is required by March 31st of each year to keep up-to-date, but no additional training or testing is needed. The Lead Professional Certification Refresher Application is available online to view and download.
