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. The course content is presented primarily through text and pictures. This is NOT a video-based course.
