Southwest Nebraska Public Health Department (SWNPHD) announces a $500 radon mitigation scholarship available to an area contractor.
The purpose of the scholarship is to make radon mitigation more easily accessible in Southwest Nebraska. With the increased awareness of radon and the increase in the number of tests being conducted, SWNPHD felt it was necessary for area contractors to become trained and licensed in radon mitigation.
The requirement to become a Nebraska radon mitigation specialist includes training in radon measurement, as well as radon mitigation. The radon training is typically offered in Lincoln sometime during the spring. Training involves 16 hours in measurement, and 24 hours covering mitigation.
