CARST's 8th Annual Radon Conference

Sheraton Cavalier Saskatoon hotel

Pre-Conference Sessions: 

Join us on Saturday for a great hands on experience.  The field trips are a popular option that sell out quickly. Don't hesitate if you'd like to join in!  Day-long programming includes lunch.We have two streams this year:

Saturday, April 27 2019 8:30 am - 4:00 pm (Lunch and Transportation included)

Field Trip A - Residential Mitigation and more...

Join Colin Dumais and his team, as he dives into various aspects of residential radon mitigation to help expand your knowledge and understanding of how various systems within a residential structure can affect pressures, back drafting and interact with each other.  

Field Trip B - Commercial Mitigation/VOC Mitigation

Join Darius Mali for a short course that summarizes recent research on design methods and performance monitoring for mitigation systems to prevent radon exposures and subsurface vapour intrusion (VI) to indoor air for volatile organic compounds (VOCs). This is a two-part course where attendees will: 1) see the data collection procedures in a real-time demonstration with class participation, and 2) observe the mathematical analysis of the data in an interactive classroom setting. The objective of this course will be to provide attendees with new tools to provide more cost-effective mitigation systems, particularly in large commercial buildings or buildings that show unexpected results via conventional methods.  The course will guide attendees through collection of transient vacuum response test data, subslab helium tracer testing data and mass emission monitoring data, demonstrate a simple spreadsheet model for data analysis and interpretation, and provide examples that span a range of building conditions.  The course is directed to owners, regulators and consultants who want a better understanding of mitigation system design, optimization and performance monitoring to protect human health and maintain a competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Continuing Education Courses: Sunday, April 28 - 8:30 am to 5:00 pm

As always, there are plenty of fascinating continuing education (CE) courses available on the Sunday of the Conference.  We’ll be posting details as the Conference approaches, but be sure to book your arrival in time to take advantage of this training opportunity.

Topics will include:

  • Polyurethane Spray foam insulation for Air Barrier Systems and Radon protection 
  • Health and Safety for Mitigation Professionals - What should be in your toolkit.
  • Air pressures, ventilation and its effect on radon (will touch on HRV and Blow Doors)
  • Introduction to Asbestos - What you need to know
  • Understanding CARST/C-NRPPs Approach to Radon and Real Estate and Short Term Testing
  • Social Media - How, Why and Let's Get Started
