There are many programs that offer training acceptable to both the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) and the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB).  If you are looking at a particular training program contact either of the certifying boards to confirm the acceptability of that program.  It is not the responsibility of the department to accept or reject a particular training program.

Once certified by either NRPP or NRSB, complete the Radon Certification Verification Form (PDF) and e-mail, fax or mail the form along with a copy of the certificate, to the Indoor Radon Program, see contact information below.
