For the week of June 1, 2015, the Oregon Radon Program (ORP) will be hosting trainers from the EPA-established Western Regional Radon Training Center (WRRTC). They will teach classes on radon measurement and radon mitigation at the Portland State Office Building.

Both courses include the option to take the exam, held right after each class, for ​certification by the National Radon Proficiency Program. Receipt of NRPP certificate(s) entitles the recipient to be listed on ORP's lists of measurement and mitigation professionals. While ORP does not currently endorse or regulate listed companies, ORP staff do refer to these lists when speaking to Oregonians about radon.

Please see the WRRTC's flyer on the Portland training for class content, descriptions, fees and how to enroll with WRRTC for the class(es). Please send application forms and payment to WRRTC, (not the Oregon Radon Program). Enrolled students may receive additional information by email in weeks before June 1. Also, note in the flyer that completion of the measurement course is generally required prior to taking the mitigation course.

Please direct questions about the course content, the class sign-up process, and fees to Dr. James F. Burkhart at 877-723-6607 or

Please direct questions on the class location or radon in Oregon by contacting Justin Waltz at 971-673-1217 or
