The Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Branch (CLPPB) staff manages a program to ensure that construction activities involving lead are performed in a manner to eliminate existing lead hazards, and to avoid creating new lead poisoning hazards for children and other occupants, as well as the workers themselves. The primary activities include:

  • Evaluating and accrediting training providers who teach lead specialists how to find and abate lead hazards. 
  • Evaluating the qualifications of applicants for lead certification, and granting certification to those qualified to perform lead-related construction work in an effective and lead-safe manner.


Most of your lead training and certification questions are answered in the links below. If you have any further questions, you can contact the program:

  • CLPPB Front Desk - (510) 620-5600 - ask to talk to someone in Lead-Related Construction
