Attention Landlords and Contractors RRP Classes Offered

Bangor -

BANGOR – When working in pre-1978 homes and child occupied facilities, federal law requires that contractors, painters and landlords be a ‘Certified Renovator’. To become a ‘Certified Renovator,’ an individual must take a RRP (Renovations, Repair &Painting) day long class from an accredited training provider.

Penquis and Healthy Maine Partnerships will host several classes led by Peter Crockett, an accredited training provider from the Maine Labor Group on Health.

The cost of the course is $95. A reduced fee of $25 is offered to landlords on a first come first serve basis. All attendees must register for this course.
