COMMISSIONER'S CERTIFICATION EXAMINATION
Effective September 26, 2000, individuals engaged in lead-based paint (LBP) activities in "target housing" and "child-occupied facilities" in the State of Tennessee, must be certified by the Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation. The Lead-based Paint Abatement Program is located in the Division of Solid Waste Management. Individuals seeking certification, except for those currently certified by EPA, must pass the Commissioner's (third-party) examination for LBP inspector, risk assessor or supervisor, which is separate from examinations associated directly with a training course. Certification examinations must be taken and passed within six (6) months following the completion of a lead-based paint training course accredited by the EPA, or the State of Tennessee, or an EPA authorized state.
The Commissioner's examination will be administered on the following dates, times and locations for individuals seeking LBP professional certification as an inspector, risk assessor or supervisor.
All examinations will begin at 10:00 a.m.
