Most people looking for radon credentials are professionals in home inspection, plumbing, HVAC, or similar vocations who have successfully passed other vocational exams and assume the radon exam is a similar measure of competency.
However, psychometric assessments objectively measure the understanding of a subject matter in relation to the candidate’s ability to use mental reasoning, skill, intelligence, personality traits, motivations, and interests. In other words, psychometric exams are often described as being riddled with ‘trick’ questions; as opposed to competency/skill tests which simply determine to what extent a candidate possesses a particular skill or capability.
Radon is not your garden variety subject matter. In contrast, radon science is a healthy mix of nuclear physics, building performance, construction and trades skill, and environmental science. The exam success rate is low for someone without extensive practical radon experience or subject matter knowledge.
Exam success rate is increased exponentially when subject matter mastery is combined with the strong reasoning and critical judgement applied to hypothetical situations on an exam.
Most continuing education classes are only offered online. However, all entry-level classes that qualify students for national certification exam or state license exams are also offered in a hybrid format.
Our hybrid classes allow you to learn the core material online at your convenience; then attend an instructor-led, intensive review and exam prep in a live classroom environment with your peers.
Our hybrid components are offered in physical classrooms in the Chicago area, New Jersey, Des Moines, IA, and often at industry conferences.
Our hybrid classes are also available via live-stream webcastfor students who cannot attend the physical location. Webcasts are simply a live streaming of the real-time instruction happening in the physical classroom enabling the students to interact directly with the instructor and classroom students. Fun!
Note: students must complete the online modules before attending the hybrid session.
