Could Your Lead Abatement Training Be Free?
The Nashua Lead Paint & Healthy Homes Program is once again providing reimbursement of up to $350 for the cost of training to become a newly licensed NH Lead Abatement Worker, Supervisor or Contractor.
You don't have to live or work in Nashua to take advantage of this opportunity which would completely cover the cost of becoming a certified Lead Abatement Worker, or most of the cost to become a Contractor or Supervisor at one of our upcoming trainings! They have just notified us that they approved training for a few more people. Don't let this opportunity go by. It doesn't get better than free!
It's as easy as 1, 2, 3:
1) Log onto our Our Website to see our upcoming training schedule (Our next Lead Abatement class starts Feb. 11th!)
2) Select the class you want to take! We have two abatement classes coming up in December, and two in January!
3) As soon as you finish the class, submit this form for your reimbursement!
Funds are limited and will be available on a first come, first serve basis!
