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 online.
How do I obtain the NRPP or NRSB radon measurement certification?
To be certified by the NRPP, you must first take an approved radon measurement certification course. We will have an NRPP-approved version of this course available soon. Then you must pass the NRPP exam.
To be certified by the NRSB, you must first take an approved radon measurement certification course, such as this one, and pass the NRSB exam.

Is this the certification I need to perform radon measurement for home inspections?
Check your state’s requirements. In NJ, yes, this is what you need. In most other states, this is what you need.
To become a certified radon measurement technician, you need take the 16-hour Radon Measurement Course and then you need to pass either the NRPP or NRSB exam – unless you live in certain states (like NJ) in which case you need to take the class and then pass a state exam. Check the requirements of your state.
