Do I have to take the measurement course before/and/with the mitigation course?

To become a Certified Radon Mitigation professional, you will need a certificate of completion for a qualified Measurement Course. You can take the courses separately.

If you decide later to add mitigation, you will need a copy of your Measurement course completion certificate.

If you only want to be certified as a Mitigation professional, you'll need a Measurement course completion certificate.

 

What resources and materials are provided with the course?

The courses provide all reference materials for the national radon guidelines necessary to be successful on the quizzes and national exams.

No ASTM or ANSI standards are provided with the course materials, these can be purchased from ASTM and ANSI directly.

Course is delivered through Instructure using recorded PowerPoint presentations, instructor videos, and demonstration videos.
