Certified Radon Measurement Professionals
Nevada Radon Education Program maintains a list of Nevada Certified Measurement Professionals which is maintained and updated with certification expiration dates derived from one of two national voluntary radon proficiency programs — the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) and the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB). Both organizations list certified radon professionals who have had a specific training and passed a written exam.
A certified radon measurement professional has had specific training and passed a written test on their knowledge of testing standards and requirements for radon testing in homes and large buildings. Certified radon testers know where and how to properly place, handle and retrieve radon devices. Their continuous radon monitors must be calibrated yearly.
The Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health and the Nevada Radon Education Program do not endorse or recommend any company or individual over another. As with any home service, each professional will have their own pricing and testing devices. The price may depend upon the distance the tester has to travel to place and retrieve the unit, as well as how many areas you want tested.
