Radon professionals in Colorado are now required by law to be licensed by the State of Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). This includes both radon measurement professionals and mitigation professionals. Licensure is granted only to individuals who have completed rigorous training provided by the National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) or National Radon Safety Board (NRSB). Practicing without a license can result in criminal penalties ranging from a class 2 misdemeanor to class 6 felony.
More and more states are requiring that radon professionals be licensed and insured, a move that the radon industry widely accepts and supports. With radon being the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers, unqualified and untrained individuals in the radon industry have negatively impacted the health and safety of homeowners and renters for decades.
Make sure your radon professional is licensed before you hire them. If you live in Colorado, you can visit the Colorado Office of Radon Professionals website to verify a license. If you live outside of Colorado, you can find out if your radon professional is trained by using the “Find a Pro” tool at NRPP or NRSB.
