You must be eligible for certification before you apply. If you are not eligible and apply anyway, CDPH will deny you certification and your application fee will not be refunded. The eligibility requirements for each certificate are listed below. These are also given in the application instructions. For more help determining your eligibility, call the Lead-Related Construction Information Line at 1-800-597-5323 (Outside California, dial 510-620-5694.)
If it has been more than 1 year since you completed your CDPH-approved training, you must take 7 hours of CDPH-approved Continuing Education before applying for certification. To find out what kind of continuing education you must take, look at Taking Lead Training.
If it has been more than 3 years since you completed your CDPH-approved training, you must take the full course over again before applying for certification.
