How do I become a Certified Radon Measurement Technician?
Requirements vary by state. Most states accept the national radon measurement certifications given by either the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) or the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB), but some states have their own certification. Check with your state to be sure.
