Course Instructor: Colin Dumais

Colin is an engaging, dynamic trainer with a passion for radon and building science.  He approaches radon mitigation with a scientific process that provides a resource to course participants which allows them to translate the radon mitigation process to many different buildings and situations.  Many who have taken the course in the past have greatly appreciated the knowledge they have gained from the course content as well as from the interaction with other course participants as Colin engages each participant to share experience and knowledge. 

Course Focus:

Radon awareness is increasing, and with it is the need for properly trained professionals to help homeowners reduce their indoor radon levels.  This course is designed to prepare people to become Radon Mitigation Professionals certified through C-NRPP.  It is based on Health Canada's scientific approach to radon mitigation.  Course participants will be trained in techniques to interpret radon test results, understand radon entry, conduct diagnostic testing and design and/or installation of radon mitigation systems and determine the most effective way to manage radon concentrations within buildings.

This course is a combination of online, classroom and field experiences.  Each participant will be expected to complete online content prior to attending the course.  Each participant will receive access to the CNRTC online Radon Measurement and Radon Mitigation course for 1 year.  This information will be emailed once registration is confirmed.  

This course will be confirmed once we have 10 participants registered, a decision will be made once 10 are registered or by June 1, 2020.
