This course takes radon testing to the next logical step in developing a considered approach to addressing radon concerns that have been identified during a building survey.  Whether a survey involves a daycare facility, a school, or an administrative building, there is often a need, as dictated by the availability of resources versus the severity of the problem, to have a plan of attack.  This tool can be very helpful in creating realistic budgets as well as allaying occupant concerns by providing a “plan for action.”

To insure a good starting point, the course covers how surveys are conducted and interpreted to verify that previous measurements were conducted properly.  This aspect allows individuals who have not conducted surveys to properly conduct them as well as to have a means for developing a plan if necessary.
