A new law enacted earlier this year, mandates that all Contractors and Landlords working in pre-1978 buildings obtain an EPA firm license in Lead Safety Training. And today, Oneida County announced the extension of two training programs to better serve Oneida County residents.

Oneida County Executive Anthony Picente said classes have been extended in the Lead Safety Renovator Training and Certificate Programs at MVCC, HCCC and at all BOCES locations. The County also added another training course in Asbestos Abatement Training. Picente said the aim is to tackle the lead problems in Oneida County.
He said, “The partnership between the County’s lead Primary Prevention Program and MVCC was intended to provide local contractors and property owners in Oneida County the training in lead-safe renovations mandated by the EPA. The expansion of classes to the BOCES facilities in New Hartford and Verona will better accommodate our residents in Western and Southern Oneida County. Additionally, the training in Asbestos Removal now being offered will prepare our residents for new employment opportunities and equip them for ‘green jobs’.
Picente said residents can assist in the County’s lead prevention efforts by only hiring contractors who have completed the EPA requirement for any home repairs or renovations.
