Credits: Elective


Any structure built before 1978 is at risk for containing lead paint. The prevalence of lead paint may impact a buyer’s decision on whether to purchase a property. Sellers may have more realistic expectations regarding the sale of their property if they are aware of the implications of lead-based paint that may be present on their property. Real estate agents can help to communicate the implications of lead-based paint to their clients if they are better educated on the subject.


Learning Objectives:

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:


  • Define lead abatement and explain why lead based paint is prevalent in buildings prior to 1978.


  • Identify and explain the health implications of lead-based paint poisoning.


  • Describe risks of performing renovations on areas afflicted with lead-based paint.


  • Explain government regulations that address lead-based paint.


  • Describe tests available to determine if lead-based paint is prevalent in a building.


  • Communicate implications of lead-based paint to clients.
