Initial radon measurement training courses should have a minimum of 16 hours of classroom instruction. Initial radon mitigation training courses should have a minimum of 24 hours that includes active participation in radon mitigation techniques. Classes meeting these requirements which have been approved by the National Radon Safety Board and/or the National Radon Proficiency Program will be approved by KDHE. Other training classes will be approved on a case-by-case basis.
For initial mitigation training which is completed using an approved online training course, a "hands-on" or "field" portion to the mitigation training is required to be provided by a mentor who is a certified Radon Mitigation Technician. If the field training is provided within Kansas, the mentor must be Kansas-certified. If the field training is provided out of state, the mentor must be certified by the NRPP or NRSB, or another Kansas-approved state.
The Mentor Checklist for Field-Based Radon Mitigation Training (PDF) is required to be completed and submitted to KDHE as part of the initial application for certification as a radon mitigation technician, in conjunction with the documentation of the online training course and the successful passage of the NRPP or NRSB examination.
Currently, the examinations offered by the National Radon Safety Board and/or the National Radon Proficiency Program for radon measurement and mitigation are approved by KDHE. Other examinations will be approved on a case-by-case basis.
