Full course description
Radon Mitigation Field Day Training for Online Course
This course is a prerequisite for the national professional certification exam; fulfills the requirement for an entry level course hands-on training session. Separate course and registration, but must be taken with the Mitigation course or Combined Measurement and Mitigation course for full course credit.
Participants will be contacted after enrollment to discuss scheduling options.
The goal of this day-long training is to focus in a field setting on key concepts that are best covered in real work settings. These concepts are covered in the mitigation course sections and videos but field demonstration is an essential way to reinforce learning. The intent is not to enable you to do the simplest construction tasks that are part of radon mitigation, like cutting and gluing pipe, cutting holes in buildings, caulking joints and leakage points, or pricing of services. Those skills are best learned through practice and safe installation options like mitigating your own or a relative's home, and review of other basic materials. The purpose of the field day is to cover system design and diagnostics issues with real world conditions and observe installed systems for concept reinforcement. Availability of field sites and systems and their conditions offer different learning opportunities and flexibility is a key aspect of this process, to take advantage of what is present on the site.
