Advanced Multifamily Radon Measurement

Eight hours, continuing education for radon measurement professionals. This very intense one-day course helps you to prepare for the new and very challenging Multifamily Radon Measurement Examination for National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) Certificate Program.* The demand for professionals in this area has been fueled by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) mortgage requirements for multifamily property purchase, refinancing, or rehabilitation. The HUD requirements include radon testing of multifamily buildings according to the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard on multifamily buildings radon measurement. This course focuses on this standard.

Advanced Schools and Large Buildings Radon Measurement

Eight or 12 hours, continuing education for radon measurement professionals and environmental consultants. This course focuses on the skills you need to understand the major factors unique to radon measurement in schools and large buildings. The goal of the course is to help you design and manage radon measurement projects in schools and large buildings. Topics include test preparation, determining test locations, test procedures, required measurement conditions, quality control, and test documentation. The course is built around the new American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard, Protocols for Conducting Radon and Radon Decay Product Measurements in Schools and Large Buildings.
