The National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) is an organization that maintains a network of certified radon professionals, including those specializing in radon measurement, mitigation and as radon laboratories. The NRPP maintains standards that its members adhere to, which you can view by clicking here.
Currently, the NRPP has over 2,300 members who are expected to operate by the ethical practices and national standards set forth by the organization, as well as abiding by local laws and regulations when applicable.
Depending on the state in question and the individual goals of the inspector, there may be benefits for radon professionals who join either the NRPP or the National Radon Safety Board (NRSB), which is another association you can learn more about by clicking here.

What Benefits Are There For Joining NRPP?
The EPA no longer operates its National Proficiency Program, so it is more important than ever that homeowners and other consumers have access to radon professionals certified by a respected association. Radon is still a misunderstood threat to public health, although consumer awareness is growing. For this reason, it is important that members of the radon industry be competent, informed and accessible to the public.

Once certified, you will also:
- Be listed on the NRPP searchable database of radon professionals
- Receive NRPP newsletters
- Have the opportunity, if you so choose, to participate in local committees and outreach efforts
- Be informed of educational programs and conferences
- Be recognized as a professional!
- Be able to advertise your services with the aid of NRPP certification.
