Lead Abatement and Certification Program
Any individual performing lead-based paint activities in the State of Michigan must be certified by the Department of Community Health, Lead Hazard Remediation Program (LHRP). After completing an approved training course, a person wishing to be certified must submit a Lead Professional Certification application to LHRP. The applicant must then pass the State certification (3rd party) exam. Certifications are valid for three years, with no additional training or testing during that period. An annual certification fee is required to be paid, however, no later than March 31st of each year to keep the certiication up-to-date.
