Any licensing only creates more revenue for the states, educational companies, insurance companies, and trade associations.
They do not, and never will, benefit home buyers and consumers. Any licensing is a basic, minimal requirement.
Radon laws where implemented here in Kansas in 2011, and are never enforced or policed. Many testers give radon tests for free, and reap the lost revenue into the fees of mitigation, needed or not. Personally, I caught a tester with a CRM that was giving false high readings, and making tons of money to the spouse who installed the mitigation systems. Any electronic device can, and does, gets adjusted to print out anything the tester wants.
Dear radon test law providers: ITS A MACHINE!!! How can you absolutely trust them? They can be manipulated.
I use Air-Chek kits, but with cost, travel, and shipping, I have to charge a high fee to get lab results: not machine results. Some testers here are $79 and lower, and many are free. Hard to compete for free. Kansas laws just pushed us little guys out of the way so they can test with “their” CRM’s and make thousands on mitigation equipment. All they did was create a scam. The governor saw that the old HI laws were bad, and got them out.
Radon will soon follow.
