EPA-Established Training Center
Kansas State University's Regional Radon Training Center is one of original five US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)-established Regional Radon Training Centers (RRTCs) founded in 1989. Originally part of the Midwestern Universities Radon Consortium with the University of Minnesota K-State's RRTC is located at Kansas State University. Courses are offered across the central, western, and southern U.S. in-person in 33 states and online. During Covid-19 in-person courses and field sessions are suspended through at least July 31, 2020.
Our introductory radon measurement course and radon mitigation course (as well as instructors and training materials) are approved by these two certification programs: the National Radon Proficiency Program and the National Radon Safety Board.
National and International Awards
KSU and our instructors have won many national and international awards including those from the American Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists (AARST), EPA, Association of Public and Land-Grant Universities, the Housing Education and Research Association, and several Universities—no one matches our record of awards!
Our instructors have completed tens of thousands of radon measurements, mitigated well over 30,000 buildings, written EPA measurement protocols and national standards of practice, testified before Congress on radon policy, written World Health Organization radon guidance, and worked at national US laboratories.
High Exam Pass Rates
Our entry or introductory level radon measurement and radon mitigation courses produce exceptionally high national proficiency exam pass rates. Plus, our advanced continuing education courses produce new business opportunities for the radon professional, as well as pride in saving lives from the serious lung cancer risk caused by the indoor toxin radon.
