Radon Measurement Certification FAQs

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.

Rutgers is in New Jersey. What are the requirements there?

New Jersey has its own radon measurement certification. If you live in NJ, you do not need the NRSB or NRPP certifications – you need to take the NJDEP test. This test is administered by the NRPP and is offered at PSI testing centers.

To be certified by the NRPP or the NRSB, you must first take an approved radon measurement certification course, such as this 16 Hour Radon Measurement Proficiency online course. Then you must pass either the NRPP or NRSB exam.

Where do I take these exams?

The NRPP and NJDEP radon measurement exams are available at PSI testing centers. Check and see which one is nearest to you.

To take the NRSB exam, you need to contact them and arrange a time and place.
