Lead Base Paint Testing

I live in Kentucky and was wondering if you have to have any certification in order just to test for lead base paint? Anyone can help me thanks in advance.

Have you read the procedure to test for lead based paint?
At this time I choose not to do it.

In Kentucky I would probably start Lead Based Paint

Look up the RRP Rule

Not sure in Kentucky but here in kansas it is one of the few things that is actually licensed and it can be very expensive to get into. I do believe you have to be epa certified in all states in addition to the state cert. I may be wrong on that last one though
