The Lead Renovator program is 8 contact hours with classroom and hands-on activities and an examination. Typical trainees are homeowners/property owners/managers, building trades, contractors and their employees, or those who would like to use the certification to obtain work in the construction industry. These trainings are difficult to come by without traveling quite a distance to Buffalo, Rochester, Albany or NYC and are being offered at NO COST right here in our local community.
Bring a lunch or go out to eat during the 1-hour lunch break.
