and then take a proctored test at a PSI exam location (not required for Missouri but it is for the state of Kansas, which is 10 miles away). The next step is the Mitigation portion where it gets a little murky for me. Here are my questions:
Is the necessary study prep info for the Radon Mitigation also on the afore mentioned free online course?
If not, would I have to pay for a stand alone Mitigation online course?
I understand there is a ~one day long hands on course. How is that handled if I am able to take the free online interNACHI course?
Gary, I live in the KC metro area so I will need to take the Kansas Radon certifications. I have learned through talking to someone that helps run the certification testing at AARST-NRPP that the Mitigation test (Certi-2 through PSI) can NOT be taken after doing the interNACHI online course. That’s likely because there is a hands on portion that needs to be also successfully completed.
However, I am still not 100% sure that I will be allowed to take the Radon Monitoring test (Certi-1) after studying the interNACHI online course or if allowed to take the proctored test, that my passing test results would be accepted by the Kansas Radon program. I am waiting on phone calls back from a couple of the agencies.
I would love to hear your experiences since I see you also live in the KC area and have the Kansas Radon certification.
Ok, I got a hold of the KDHE folks and they told me that they told me that they would accept the Radon Measurement course as offered by interNACHI and I will, of course also have to pass the PSI proctored Cert-1 test and submit a QA plan for their review as well. The Radon Mitigation portion coursework will not however, be free! Oh well, I saved about $350.
