There are no requirements for radon inspection in the state of Washington. However, the state does maintain a list of certified radon professionals. The Washington Radon Program endorses Radon Measurement Professionals who are certified through the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) or the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP).
The PHII Radon Measurement Course has been approved by both NRSB and 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 NEHA 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.
