Lead Abatement Supervisor / Worker Refresher
The Michigan Lead Abatement Act of 1998 requires certification of individuals engaged in lead-based paint activities in the state of Michigan. 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.
