Under the rule, beginning April 22, 2010, contractors performing renovation, repair and painting projects that disturb lead-based paint in homes, child care facilities, and schools built before 1978 must be certified and must follow specific work practices to prevent lead contamination.
Our LEAD training course has been approved by the U.S. EPA and is only approved for purposes of certification under Section 402 of TSCA. Please visit our Classroom Courses page to learn more about this class.

Inspection Training of Arizona will coordinate with participating inspection companies throughout the valley to help you fulfill this very valuable training.
Field training consists of real home inspections, up to four students may attend with one inspector. The student will observe the inspection of all the various visible and accessible systems and components in the home and its exterior. They will also have the opportunity to observe how the inspector interacts with the clients, seller and real estate agents and how information about the home is conveyed to the clients through the inspection report. The students will be required to fill out their own inspection reports. If you do not have a reporting software, ITAZ will provide you with a reporting form for your parallel inspections.
Even if your state does not require parallel inspections for licensing, time spent on field inspections can greatly enhance a student's understanding of the whole process.
