COVID-19 Training Update
The most recent Proclamation of Disaster Emergency that Governor Reynolds issued on June 25, 2021 in regard to Chapter 105 in the section pertaining to in-person continuing education indicates that effective July 25, 2021 online training that was allowed under the proclamation will no longer be allowed. This proclamation does NOT apply to refresher courses taken with our company, Iowa Lead Safety.
Iowa Lead Safety has submitted the appropriate documents for online refresher training and has been approved by the Iowa Department of Public Health to offer all Iowa-approved LEAD REFRESHER courses online, on a permanent basis.

The Iowa Dept of Public Health has converted to a 3 year licensing period for lead professionals. When you renew your license, you will have one date on which your training and licensing will expire every three years. Along with this change, the department is now processing training certifications, licensing and fees in their new database.
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Administrator Andrew Wheeler, along with Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, announced new, tighter standards for lead in dust on floors and window sills to protect children from the harmful effects of lead exposure.
“EPA is delivering on our commitment in the Administration’s Federal Lead Action Plan to take important steps to reduce childhood lead exposure,” said EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler.
The rule will become effective 180 days after publication in the Federal Register.
