There are no requirements for radon inspection in the state of Massachusetts. However, PHII strongly recommends training before beginning radon testing.
The PHII Radon Measurement Course has been approved by both the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) and the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) for initial certification. If you are interested in expanding your business to do radon testing, you can begin by taking the PHII Radon Measurement course. When you have completed the course, you will receive information on how to register for the NRPP or NRSB exam. Both organizations require that you complete an approved course, pass their certification exam, and maintain your certification with continuing education.
Note: The NRSB has also approved PHII's Radon Measurement Course for 16 Hours of Continuing Education.
