What will happen when EPA receives my lead-based paint certification application?

Answer: If you are applying for certification as an Inspector, Risk Assessor, or Supervisor, EPA will send you a letter that instructs you how to register for and take the required third party exam for that discipline. If you are applying for certification as a Project Designer or Worker, EPA will begin processing your application as soon as it is complete.
