Q7

When testing for Lead Based Paint do you anticipate using an X-Ray Fluorescence (XRF) gun?
Note: The XRF method is not recommended for a student who plans to occasionally test for lead paint due to the high initial and ongoing costs associated with the XRF gun.
XRF technology is an expensive but accurate, nondestructive elemental analysis method that can be used to test for lead concentration in a wide range of substrates including cement, wood, metals, plastics.

Q8

When removing Lead Based Paint, do you plan on working in federally funded structures or on projects where you are hired to clean spills or remove all Lead Based Paint from a structure?
Federally funded for purposes of our courses means that the dwelling receives greater than $5,000.00 per unit in federal funds. Section 8, HUD homes and low-income housing are common types that fall in this category.
spills refer to instances where Lead Based Paint is disturbed by a third party resulting in gross contamination of adjacent surfaces

Q9

When remediating structures or materials contaminated with Methamphetamine production byproducts, will you be working under an onsite certified supervisor?

Fantastic! If you do not intend on leading the Asbestos abatement project as a supervisor and there will be another individual that is the supervisor, then the Asbestos Worker initial course is ideal for you! If you do decide later that you want to become a supervisor, you will then need to take the initial Asbestos Supervisor course.

Asbestos abatement projects require the presence and supervision of a trained and licensed individual. If you do not foresee being that individual then select No below. Note: if you decide to supervise Asbestos abatement projects in the future, you will need to attend the full supervisor course. Most individuals, who can read and write English fluently, take the supervisor course but then become certified as the worker with their respective state agency. This enables them to obtain supervisor certifications through the respective state environmental department in the future, without having to sit in another initial course.

Sounds like you need to become an Asbestos abatement supervisor. You can do this by first taking the initial Asbestos Contractor / Supervisor class.
