NRSB Radon Mitigation Specialist-Radon Hazard Control
Radon Mitigation Specialist is a national program that certifies individuals who have demonstrated advanced knowledge of radon mitigation techniques in single-family housing. The individual has agreed to abide by local radon mitigation laws as well as the U.S. Radon Mitigation Standards. The program was launched in 1998 and is based on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's program. EPA's program began in 1986 and ended in 1998. See www.nrsb.org/nrsb-s1.htm for more information.
The Radon Mitigation Specialist program is run by the National Radon Safety Board. Individuals must take an approved entry level radon measurement course and pass an exam. Typically, NCHH is concerned about programs that do not require experience to be credentialed, require testing that is closely tied to a specific training program. On balance, the program follows the EPA precedent and has sufficient strength and credibility to offset these weaknesses.
- Experience is not required to become credentialed. Take special care to identify the person's previous projects and check their references.
- Individuals and not firms are credentialed. Therefore, make sure the individual who is credentialed directly supervises the radon mitigation work.
- This classification is specific for measuring radon in buildings similar to single-family homes. However, it does not preclude the individual's ability to apply these skills to larger buildings.
- Several states require additional licensing or certification for radon measurement.
