How to get certified

The NRSB has modified its application process to now include registration of a business. There is no fee associated with the business registration. 

To apply for Radon Measurement and/or Radon Mitigation certification you will need to complete the following:

Please sign, date and mail, fax or email applications to:
National Radon Safety Board

 Elmsford, NY 10523
 Email: info@nrsb.org
 Fax: (914) 345-1169
 
Upon completion of the training requirements and successful completion of the requisite exam, the applicant sends documentation of the training, exam and if warranted proficiency test(s) and certificate of calibration(s) to the NRSB administrative office with a non-refundable application fee.
 
The National Radon Safety Board administrative office reviews all certification applications, and if the documentation is in order, issues the appropriate certification. An 8” x 10” wall certificate and a wallet identification card are mailed to the applicant. Individual certification information is posted on the NRSB website.
 
If an application is incomplete or otherwise not in order, the applicant is notified by phone or email. If the deficiencies in the application are corrected, the certification is awarded.
 
Laboratory Accreditation (ARL)
 
The NRSB has modified its application process to now include registration of a business. There is no fee associated with the business registration. 
 
To apply for Laboratory Accreditation you will need to complete the following;
Please sign, date and mail, fax or email applications to:
National Radon Safety Board
14 Hayes Street
 Elmsford, NY 10523
 Email: info@nrsb.org
 Fax: (914) 345-1169
 
An NRSB Radon Measurement Specialist (RMS) must be affiliated with the laboratory and listed on the application. Certification requirements for RMS are listed above. Applicants must specify which devices the laboratory uses in performing radon analysis and list the NRSB device code for each on the application. For a list of approved devices click here.
 
A laboratory must submit current proficiency test results for all devices used to perform radon analysis and for which the Accredited Radon Laboratory (ARL) wishes to maintain a proficiency listing – including activated charcoal, liquid scintillation, electret ion chamber, alpha track, continuous radon monitor and continuous working level monitor. To conduct a proficiency test, ARLs are required to submit the devices to an accredited secondary radon chamber for exposure to known concentrations. ARLs are expected to provide measurement results that are within +- 25% of the target value. For a list of accredited NRSB radon chambers see this page.
 
In addition to the proficiency tests, applicants seeking to use continuous radon monitors or continuous working level monitors must also submit a current certificate of calibration for all monitors used to perform measurements. A certificate of calibration must be issued by an accredited radon chamber that is manufacturer-authorized to perform calibration for the instrument model. For a list of accredited NRSB chambers see this page.
 
If an application is incomplete or otherwise not in order, the applicant is notified by phone or email. If the deficiencies in the application are corrected, the certification is awarded.
