We started in the radon business a few years ago when my sister’s home measured 2,400 Bq/m3. That is 12 times Health Canada’s recommended action level. Her home was dangerous for her and her family. We fixed it and started up our own radon measurement and mitigation company, Radon West Ltd.
We believe that every home in Canada should be tested for radon and to do that both the awareness and the number of qualified radon professionals needs to increase.
We have been lucky enough to be mentored by one of the leading radon specialists in North America, Doug Kladder who has been involved in the radon industry since the mid 1980’s. Now we have partnered with Doug to develop and offer comprehensive online curriculum specific to Canada.
Our company, Radon West Ltd., has opened a new division, the Canadian National Radon Training Centre (CNRTC) with a focus on quality, engaging online training to help grow the radon business in Canada.
The courses are approved certification courses by the Canadian National Radon Proficiency program (C-NRPP). All courses have telephone and email support by experienced Canadian radon professionals.
Our team has an extensive background in Environmental Science, Surveying, Geology, Building Science, Energy Efficient Construction, Solar and Wind energy expertise, and course development and instruction at post-secondary institutions.
