EPA administers several different types of training and certification. You can find a general list at Getting Certified by EPA.
Here is more about a few of the specific types of certification:

Federal law requires asbestos control professionals to take training on how to properly inspect for the presence of asbestos and to repair and remove it. Training also is required to develop asbestos management plans for schools and to manage and design asbestos abatement projects. States offer these training courses, which must meet EPA guidelines.
