Entry-Level Radon Measurement and Mitigation Courses for NRPP Certification

The following is a list of trainers who provide entry level radon training courses. To become certified as either a radon mitigation or measurement service provider one must attend an entry level course, such as the ones listed below, pass a NRPP Exam and submit an application. If you attend one of the classroom-based courses, you will be offered the opportunity to take the NRPP exam at the conclusion of the course. If you choose to complete a distance-based course, you will need to schedule your certification exam through a PSI computer-based testing site. Please call PSI's central registration at 800-211-2754. The cost is $110 for Measurement (NRP MEA) and $100 for Mitigation (NHH RMI). All major credit cards are accepted. All of the course providers listed below provide courses that meet the entry level requirements and can assist in the entire certification process. Courses are listed alphabetically by provider. Note: This is not a complete list of all companies that provide radon education.
