Testing for radon levels in the air is NOT enough to save lives because radon can also be found in water! Waterborne radon gasses out of wells, showers and faucets into the air and is then just as dangerous as its airborne counterpart. Whether it be inhaled or ingested, radon gas can potentially cause cancer of the lungs, stomach, or colon.

It is important to understand that waterborne radon gets into homes in different ways than airborne radon. Accordingly, the systems to remove high levels of radon in water are completely different than those typically used to reduce airborne radon levels in buildings.

This self-paced online course focuses on the effects of radon in our water supply. You will review the physics of radioactivity and atomic decay, while learning about the relative health risks of radon when it is ingested in water and inhaled through the air. You will learn how water absorbs radon from the soil and how radon-contaminated water enters the air. Most importantly, you will explore methods to measure radon levels in water and how to remove radon when appropriate in order to keep clients safe from the dangerous effects of waterborne radon.

Because this is a self-paced online program, you will be free to work on this course anytime and anywhere you choose. You can keep your business schedule on track while still sharpening your skills and completing all CE requirements.

NOTE: This course requires internet access and an email address.

How Rutgers' Online Radon Courses Work

This is a self-paced online course hosted in Rutgers' Sakai learning management system.

When you sign up for a class hosted in Sakai, you will receive two auto-generated emails within a few minutes of completing your online registration. (Look for messages from notifications@sakai.rutgers.edu with the subject line "sakai.rutgers.edu Site Notifications;" check your spam folder if you do not see it in your inbox.) The first email will say that you have been added to the course and the second email will contain your username and password.

For all other registrations (mailed, faxed, emailed, by phone, etc.), you will receive these emails as soon as we process your registration.

NOTE: If you have previously taken any Rutgers Sakai course, you will only receive the initial welcome email when you register for this class. You will not receive a new username and password. You need to sign in with the same username and password you were assigned the first time you registered for a Sakai course. If you need to reset your password, click here.

If you need further assistance accessing the course, please contact our registration department at 848-932-9271, option 2 or registration@njaes.rutgers.edu.
