This certificate is a business card size placard , which contains the date of Issue and date of Expiration along with the Certified Persons Photograph !

The LAW states that anyone who Removes more than 18 square feet of wall board OR 18 l.f. of Trim or mouldings MUST be Certified OR perform this work in the prescence of a CERTIFIED Credential Carrying Person .

The CERTIFICATION Prescribes Methods That Must Be Performed in order to remove said Lead Containing Painted Products. Since Gypsum Wall Board cannot be tested , ALL wall board in PRE 1978 built structures Must be cosidered contaminated by LEAD !
