From radon science basics to certification test preparation, our Radon Measurement Proficiency course is your best introduction to the why, how, and when of measuring radon gas. In addition to learning the science of radon, this course will prepare you to sit for national (NRPP, NRSB) or state radon measurement certification programs. This two-day class provides 16 hours of NRPP, NRSB and NJDEP credits.
Through hands-on instruction, you will learn radon mitigation theory and the latest techniques used to diagnose and correct radon problems. You will leave the class with the know-how to design and set up a working radon mitigation system. This course will also prepare you to sit for national (either NRPP or NRSB) or state radon mitigation certification exams. This three-day class provides 24 hours of NRPP, NRSB and NJDEP credits.
Online Radon Classes
The online courses are available on the internet 24./7. They are self-paced; however, they are NOT video based. These online courses are mainly text and images.
Approved as an entry level course for radon measurement by the NRPP, NRSB and NJDEP, this online course presents the information you need to initially become a certified radon measurement service provider and it prepares you for the two major national certification exams (NEHA-NRPP and NRSB) as well as New Jersey’s exam for Radon Measurement Technicians. This class provides 16 hours of NRPP, NRSB and NJDEP credits.
This self-paced online course focuses on the effects of radon in our water supply. You will review the physics of radioactivity and atomic decay, while learning about the relative health risks of radon when it is ingested in water and inhaled through the air. You will learn how water absorbs radon from the soil and how radon-contaminated water enters the air. Most importantly, you will explore methods to measure radon levels in water and how to remove radon when appropriate in order to keep clients safe from the dangerous effects of waterborne radon. This class provides 8 hours of NRPP, NRSB and NJDEP credits.
Gain a broad understanding of the construction methods that help reduce radon entry and accumulation in new buildings. Learn how radon gas behaves and how different factors, such as geology, air flow, and construction techniques can alter its behavior. This class provides 8 hours of NRPP, NRSB and NJDEP credits.
You will review some basic information about radon. You will learn about: the physics of radon; common entry methods; health effects of radon; and basic mathematical tools that can assist in radon measurement and mitigation. This class provides 4 hours of NRPP, NRSB and NJDEP credits.
You will review some basic elements of radon measurement. After completing this course, you will be able to: explain the uses, pros, and cons of various radon measurement devices; measure indoor radon levels; and recommend mitigation to homeowners when necessary. This class provides 4 hours of NRPP, NRSB and NJDEP credits.
