For over 25 years, the Eastern Regional Radon Training Center (ERRTC) at Rutgers University has been providing training in radon measurement and mitigation to professionals throughout the country. To improve the learning experience for students, the ERRTC opened a brand-new, state-of-the-art training facility on the Cook Campus in summer 2015.
“Watching the new radon training facility being built from the ground up has been really interesting,” said Program Coordinator Pamela Springard-Mayer.
The new facility was used for the first time by students attending the July 15 Radon Mitigation class.
In the past, the hands-on portions of the Rutgers three-day Radon Mitigation Proficiency Course were taught at Rutgers' Environmental Health and Safety Building (affectionately known as "the slab") on the Livingston Campus in Piscataway.
