Yes. Go to the EPA website and you can find any info you need about certificate.

Aaron is right, you can get certified at any time, you just can't work on the homes. You might want to check to see if your state has adopted the rule here.
You may have to pay them instead of EPA.

Here are some threads you might find interesting.

Many providers are now offering an online 6 hour class followed up with a 2 hour hands on to be certified.

Never argue with a fool - they will drag you down to their level, then beat you with experience.

Dust Sampling Technician, a third party verification required by HUD.
It may be required on certain RRP jobs in July 2011.

So what did you think of the class?

Yeah the class was the very same as before, the only difference in the last certificate and this one is with this one I'm able legally test to see if there is lead or not.

So are you looking to make some money on testing for other contractors is that why you took the DST class?

That is a possibility, but mostly because it is a requirement in my state to become an instructor.

At the last training, the instructor told the rest of class that they should "CYA" by having a third party verification for clearance in addition to a cleaning verification.

Yeah the instructor said the same to us, that they may make a new ruling with the epa on that. You might want to market yourself to the homeowners so as to be a third party contractor.
