Radon Certification in New Jersey

In the state of New Jersey, you must be state certified. To become certified, you must take an approved radon course (such as the classes we offer) and the NJ certification exam.

Radon Measurement

NJ breaks Radon Measurement down into two categories:

  • NJ Radon Measurement Technician (16 hr training): Certified radon measurement technician means a person certified pursuant to this sub-chapter to perform radon and radon progeny measurement activities.

    For students who want to be a NJ Radon Measurement Technician, they need to take ERRTC's two-day radon measurement class OR radon measurement proficiency home study and then take the NJ Radon Measurement Technician Exam.
  • NJ Radon Measurement Specialist (24 hr training): Certified radon measurement specialist means a person certified pursuant to this sub-chapter to perform and/or evaluate radon and/or radon progeny measurements for a certified radon measurement business.

    Those wanting to be NJ Radon Measurement Specialists need to take the two-day radon measurement class OR radon measurement proficiency home study. In order to satisfy the additional 8 hours of training required, they must stay a few extra hours with the instructor on the first day of class and complete a graded homework assignment. They would then take the NJ Radon Measurement Specialist Exam. The price for this exam reflects the additional required training that is included.

Radon Mitigation

NJ breaks Radon Mitigation down into two categories:

  • NJ Radon MitigationTechnician (16 hr training): Certified radon mitigation technician means a person certified pursuant to this sub-chapter who installs and/or supervises the installation of radon mitigation or safeguard systems in buildings.
  • NJ Radon Mitigation Specialist (24 hr training): Certified radon mitigation specialist means a person certified pursuant to this sub-chapter to evaluate diagnostic tests to determine appropriate radon mitigation and safeguard strategies for a building.

For both Radon Mitigation Technician AND Radon Mitigation Specialist certification, individuals need to take the three-day radon mitigation class and take the appropriate exam. ERRTC did not develop the radon mitigation class to be broken down into Technician or Specialist. It's all inclusive. Individuals are not required to take a radon measurement course; however, it is strongly recommended.
