Addressing RDPs – Another Tool in the Tool Box

(69 customer reviews)

$55.00

This course explores from a practical standpoint how radon decay products are measured and how RDP reduction can enhance soil gas remediation by reducing radon risks to very low levels. NRPP approved for 4 educational CE credits, expands the radon measurement professional’s skills beyond testing residential structures to be able to take advantage of the expanding market of conducting surveys in large buildings such as schools and apartment buildings.This course prepares you to convey to the client why multiple locations need to be tested; be able to implement communication plans for occupants; and to understand special approaches to interpreting results to provide the best value to the client while shielding you from downstream liabilities.Recorded live classroom at the National Radon Conference in Vancouver in April, 2015 deals with all of these issues and more. It also provides sample notices, log sheets and other tools you will need to fully implement a large survey. You will be able to watch and listen to the lecture as well as benefit from the poignant questions posed by the live audience, consisting of radon professionals just like you.

Description

It is well known the mechanism by which radon exposure increases the potential of lung cancer is alpha release from the short-lived decay products of radon and the amount of these decay products available for respiration can vary due to air circulation rates, particulate levels, etc. This course explores from a practical standpoint how radon decay products are measured and how RDP reduction can enhance soil gas remediation by reducing radon risks to very low levels.

This course was presented at the request of the Canadian Association of Radon Scientists and Technologists at its Annual Meeting in Banff, Alberta on April 23, 2017. Although provided to a Canadian audience it has application for radon professionals around the world.

  1. Elizabeth Oseid

    This was a nice reminder about Rn decay products. We do get focussed on the radon itself, but understanding how to decrease health risks by managing RDPS can be a very helpful technique.

  2. John Ainsley Marshall

    Excellent, learned a lot about RDP’s that I didn’t know.

  3. CERTI Student

    Quality was good

  4. Kayla Parzynski

    I enjoy the feedback for the multiple-choice questions. 

  5. CERTI Student

    Course was easy to follow and provided ample materials to follow along with. I liked having the course guide open to reference while watching the video materials. 

  6. Jody

    Good information for large buildings, thank you.

  7. Wade Aldrich

    Great topic for professional testers and mitigators

  8. Chester

    Good refresher course. Well laid out and easy to follow.

  9. Vicki

    Good content.

  10. Kimberley

    Fantastic! In this course, Doug teaches material that you won’t learn anywhere else.

  11. Michael

    This course was excellent and gives the mitigator other options to look at in difficult houses, also reminds us to look at radon as its decay products and not just a soil gas.

  12. Cory

    I really liked the presentation, good insight and examples.

  13. Gene

    Course was very well presented.

    The Course Material were excellent training for understanding Radon Decay! The quiz was relevant to the questions! Thanks for the education, the course gets better every time and very informational.

  35. Todd

    Very good technical course and well structured from start to finish.  Did an excellent job providing the information in a way that makes it easy to grasp.  Thought the quiz was challenging, but suited the content of the class well.  Definitely have to understand the course material/presentation in order to pass the quiz.

  41. Janice

    Good intro course for RDPs. Basic but use a few equations.

  42. Kenny

    Awesome course! I didn’t realize how much air movement and filtering would help. It appears that air movement causes more plating out and filtering captures some of what hasn’t plated out.The info is as the course topic suggest, Another Tool in the Tool Box. I cant keep up with Doug and his math conversions to WL since we rarely use it here in the US. I’m going to start paying more attention to these issues while doing Building Investigation and suggestions for repairs.

  43. John

    very good

  44. Eric

    Interesting content and the dose of radiation actually exposed to.

  45. John

    Great teacher!  Really appreciate the extra material and the explanations provided for each quiz question.  More quiz questions would even be better!

  51. Dennis

    Excellent course.

  52. Vickie

    I’m so glad that I took this class!   Doug Kladder describes radon decay products in a way that I understood it so much better than I did before!  I now understand working levels, and how the products attach to dust…and how air filtration and air movement can affect the RDPs.

    Once again… Thank You Doug for recommending this course.

    This was probably the most enlightening and behind the scenes look at understanding the overall Health risk of Radon and the most in depth description of what exactly is going on and how to reduce the risk and mitigate the problem….Thank you!

  61. Anthony

    Very Interesting. I’ve been testing for radon for eight years now and I definitely learned something from this course and would recommend it to others.
