Lead Certification Exam Information and Schedule

Scantron testExams are now being offered by remote delivery, or in-person at the locations below.

Lead Abatement Supervisors, Hazard Investigators, Inspectors, and Risk Assessors must pass the state lead certification exam for the discipline with a score of at least 70% within six months of completing their initial training courses required for certification.

If you are able to take an exam using video conferencing technology, please email Christine Lilek to be scheduled for a remote delivered exam.

If you prefer to take the exam in-person, we will register you for the next available date in your preferred city. Seats are limited due to social distancing requirements, so we encourage you to schedule an exam soon after taking your training class.

To register for an exam, apply for certification with our Online Application, or mail in the Initial Application - Individual Lead Disciplines, F-02031 (PDF) form.

Exam registrations close two weeks before the exam date.

About a week before the scheduled exam, you'll receive a confirmation letter that includes the exam date, time, address, and details on what to bring with you. If you need to reschedule, please call us at 608-261-6876. There are no refunds for no-shows.

If you do not pass the exam with a score of 70% or higher, you may re-test up to two additional times. Remember that you must still pass the exam within six months of completing training. The exam costs $75 each time it is taken. The shorter Lead Certification Exam Registration, F-01313 (Word) form may be used to register for additional exams.

Studying for Your Lead Exam

It's a good idea to use our study guides to prepare for your exam. They list the topic areas that you're expected to know in order to pass your exam.

*Applicants for risk assessor should use the study guides for both inspector and hazard investigator, as they will be tested on the materials for both of these disciplines.
