Radon inspection is an important field because there is a certain level of background radon presence in the atmosphere almost everywhere on Earth. While a low level of background radon is almost harmless, a high level of radon can actually have harmful effects on the health of people in the area. Radon is actually a radioactive gas and high levels can cause people to develop cancer. Therefore, the radon inspection industry is a vital part of society and is growing rapidly. For people trying to earn their radon inspection certification, there are a few steps that people need to complete.
The Process to Earn a Radon Inspection Certification
- Successfully Complete the Coursework
There are classes that people need to take that will cover how to measure the level of radon in an area and also the steps involved in mitigating a high amount of radon. These courses will typically require field exercises where students will demonstrate their competency in performing the steps required to both measure radon and mitigate high levels of radon in the field. In this manner, students will receive practical coursework that is immediately relevant to their success in their chosen career path.
- Pass the Test
Like most certifications, students will also have to demonstrate their competency by passing a standardized exam. This exam is called the AARST-NRPP National Mitigation Certification Exam. Before students sit for this exam, students will need to have completed the measurement and mitigation courses discussed above in addition to the field exercise portion of the class. Alternatively, students could also elect to take the NRSB certification measurement or mitigation exam. Students can schedule to take the AARST-NRPP certification exam by contacting PSI Lasergrade testing. Students looking to take the NRSB certification exam can contact the NRSB directly.
- Complete the Application
Once students have passed the test, they are eligible to apply for their Radon Inspection Certification application. Fill this application out and return it to either the NRSB or the AARST-NRPP. With evidence of passing the classes and the tests, students will be awarded their radon inspection certification.
