I am in the process of becoming certified to perform Radon testing in PA. I have completed the course and now certified through the NRPP. I am now starting the paperwork for PA DEP certification. What a treat this is…lol Anyways most of it I understand, however they have a very large checklist for initial certification. I did put a call into the radon division and I am awaiting a call back, but thought I would reach out to my fellow inspectors who may have recently gone through this process with a few questions.
My biggest concern is the experience of one year that they are asking for? I am a new tester and don’t have the one year experiance. Any insight on this would be greatly appreciated
For the time being I am going to place AC or LS devices. PA has extra requirements for CM and Electret type devices so initially to just get certified I will place these type of devices. On the general section on the 2nd page it lists devices. Do I need to list the type of secondary device I plan on using or is this for laboratory who test the kits for the results? Any insight would be appreciated.
They also have on the check list about workers Health and safety Program?
It is this a document I must create or a program I must institute? Again any insight would be appreciated
I believe those were my biggest concerns. Any insight to this would be greatly appreciated. I hope to hear back tomorrow from the DEP Radon department but it is always nice to hear about others experience with the PA DEP. I am type of person who wants to get it right the first time.
Again thank you in advance for any insight.
