Continuing Education

The purpose of the continuing education program is to assure that all professionals continue to enhance their knowledge and understanding of the radon profession and keep abreast of new developments within this program field. The NRSB continuing education program provides a means of documenting this continuing professional education for state, federal and professional agencies, as well as the public at large.

In general, it is anticipated that courses and activities appropriate for continuing education credit will fall into two categories:

Category 1- including traditional classroom lecture courses and hands-on courses, correspondence courses, video based courses, and other types of distance learning courses.

Category 2- including Symposium/Conference attendance, the presentation of technical papers, published articles in professionals journals, and public outreach presentations, instruction, technical service, attendance at professional meetings, and apprenticeship;

Category 1 credits are likely to be given on an "hour for hour" basis, and credits for Category 2 on the basis of a published schedule which acknowledges the different levels of participation and education associated with the various recognized activities.

Each year, prior to the anniversary of the participants' initial certification, a reminder will be sent by the administrative staff that applicants for renewal must submit proof of continuing education training during the year. Individuals may submit information regarding approved course completions throughout the year, and may also submit evidence of courses taken which are pending approvals.

The Administrative Service Provider will review all documentation submitted by applicants and notify applicants by phone or email if any questions arise regarding the approval of continuing education credits which have been submitted. If no questions arise, the notification of approval will be sent to the applicants and posted on the NRSB Website.
