Radon is a potentially dangerous naturally occurring gas that can build up in buildings when it is released from the ground, and it provides a valuable service to your customers if you can detect the buildup of radon gas on their property. The Center for Environmental Research and Technology are experts at training people in radon detection, providing courses and certification since 1986 to help HVAC contractors, property inspectors, plumbers, and other home service professionals offer this safety procedure to their customers.
Radon is produced as uranium breaks down in rock, soil and water, and has no scent or taste, and is invisible. The lower pressure in your home draws radon in through the cracks in your foundation as well as other sources, and then the radon is trapped inside and builds up to dangerous levels. EPA estimates implicate radon in over twenty thousand lung cancer deaths in a given year, almost three thousand of those cases among non smokers, so radon is a very real threat.

Radon certification in Denver is available as at home courses that can be performed at their own schedule, without having to take away from work time to attend classes on someone else’s timeline.
