Course Title: Lessons Learned: Marketing the Radon Message, Getting It Done Right: Ethics of Radon Practice, Some Surprises in Soil Gas Entry
Course ID#: CNRPP-1003  

Course Description: This course presents some expensive and difficult lessons learned in 30 years of radon practice in the States with effective solutions to avoid those mistakes. Included are approaches to 'Marketing the Radon Message' that build on research on how the human brain works in decision-making. Attendees will take away the tools to craft messages in ways that encourage action: testing and mitigation. 'Getting It Done Right' presents the tricky balance between business and life-saving that is the radon industry. This section of the course will give students a framework to help them balance those decisions. Finally, an introduction to some soil gas entry surprises faced by mitigators over the years will help students avoid the costly mistakes they’ve caused and encourage sound practice and job bidding.

Course Title: Conducting Radon Surveys in Schools & Large Buildings - Online Course
Course ID#: CNRPP-1008  

Course Description: This course, approved by the C-NRPP for 4 educational CE credits, expands the radon measurement professional's skills beyond testing residential structures to be able to take advantage of the expanding market of conducting surveys in large buildings such as schools and apartment buildings. Testing large buildings entails a lot more than taking using more test devices. It is necessary to be able to convey to the client why multiple locations need to be tested; be able to implement communication plans for occupants; and to understand special approaches to interpreting results to provide the best value to the client while shielding you from downstream liabilities. This course, recorded at a live classroom session at the National Radon Conference in Vancouver in April, 2015 deals with all of these issues and more. It also provides sample notices, log sheets and other tools you will need to fully implement a large survey. You will be able to watch and listen to the lecture as well as benefit from the poignant questions posed by the live audience, consisting of radon professionals just like you.

Course Title: Addressing Radon Decay Products - Another Tool in the Toolbox
Course ID#: CNRPP-1011  

Course Description: Addressing Radon Decay Products - Another Tool in the Toolbox It is well known that the mechanism by which radon exposure increases the potential of lung cancer is alpha release from the short-lived decay products of radon that can enter the lungs during respiration. It is also well known, or at least included in the in entry level exams, that the amount of these decay products available for respiration can vary due to air circulation rates, particulate levels, etc. (aka the equilibrium factor). This course will explore from a practical standpoint how radon decay products are measured as well as how RDP reduction can enhance soil gas remediation by reducing radon risks to very low levels.
