Other Radon Credentials

Radon Measurement Specialist is a national program that certifies individuals who have demonstrated advanced knowledge of radon measurement techniques in residential structures. The individual has agreed to abide by local radon mitigation laws as well as the U.S. Radon Mitigation Standards. Individuals with less knowledge are Radon Measurement Technicians. 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#RMeasurementS for more information.

The Radon Measurement 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.
