CONNOR Institute is always striving to make our trainings the most informative and beneficial they can be. We are consistently keeping up to date on any changes in regulations and educating our new and existing students.

We also send out expiration notices in the form of physical mailers as reminders to take refresher training to stay in compliance. We communicate with regulatory agencies when necessary to obtain clarification of regulations/rules.
We teach an EPA approved course, EPA Certified Renovator where students will learn to comply with the RRP, Renovation, Repair and Painting Rule and HUD Lead-Safe Housing Rule. They will learn to work safely with lead-based paint and how to perform lead-safe work practices in pre-1978 housing and pre-1978 child-occupied facilities. Hands on activities include using a Lead-Check testing kit and a cleaning verification card. We also teach an MDE approved course, Maryland Maintenance and Repainting Supervisor course to satisfy training requirements for the state. We go over the dangers of lead exposure, controlling lead exposure and lead-safe work practices. This class offers 4 hours of hands on training, which includes a group planning activity and setting up a containment area. We offer an Are You in Compliance class, which is aimed towards owners and property managers on how to stay in compliance with state and federal regulations. Special emphasis is placed on common errors encountered in complying with lead regulations and suggested corrective measure that could be taken.
The majority of our classes are conducted at our training facility in Baltimore, MD. We have a 2,750 square foot training facility that provides adequate space for classroom style learning, as well as hands on training. Besides in house training, CONNOR Institute offers private classes at remote locations nationwide.
