Radon detection course to be held in Mississauga

December 31, 2016 by  

Radon is a naturally occurring radioactive gas that is present in a portion of Canadian homes. Since it is colorless, odorless and hard to detect, an upcoming Mississauga course will give participants skills they can use to test for this hazardous substance.

The Radon Measurement Course, which is being offered by Biomation, is a two-day course that will teach participants how to detect and measure radon in homes, apartments and businesses. It will provide instruction into the protocols set by Health Canada, and when the participants have completed the instruction, they will be able to write the Canadian – National Radon Proficiency Program (C-NRPP) exam.

The training is geared towards environmental and building professionals who are interested in being able to offer radon testing to their customers. It can also be useful to those who wish to start their own testing business. Comb binding can be put to use in creating course manuals and other instructional materials for educational sessions such as this. These can be retained by the student after they have completed the instruction.

The course will run from April 3 until 5, and will be facilitated by a member of Biomation’s staff. It will be held at the Admiral Inn in Mississauga, and the cost to register has been set at $730 each.
