Lead Certification Exam Information and Schedule

Scantron testLead 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.

Exams are held every other month in Eau Claire and Green Bay, and every month in Madison and Milwaukee according to the schedule below.

To register for an exam, apply for certification by mailing in the Initial Application - Individual Lead Disciplines, F-02031 (PDF) form. Choose the city you'd like to test in, and submit the additional $50 exam fee. We'll register you for the next available exam in your chosen city.

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 $50 each time it is taken. The shorter Lead Certification Exam Registration, F-01313 (Word) form may be used to register for additional exams.

*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.
