Radon Training Program Helps People Expand Businesses, Build Careers

His home inspection business hurt by a sluggish economy, Michael Lloyd decided to branch out, gaining skills to fix a major concern in his South Carolina community: high levels of indoor radon.

Lloyd last year became nationally certified to mitigate radon – a gas estimated to cause 21,000 lung-cancer deaths a year in the United States – at Rutgers University’s Eastern Regional Radon Training Center (ERRTC), one of four such centers established by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Lloyd, whose business is based in Moore, S.C., has completed 100 mitigation jobs since he became certified. “It turned things around,’’ the former Garden State resident said.

Nothing ‘Mini’ About Topics in Rutgers’ Mini-MPA™ Program

Michael Theokas

Former Scarlet Knights’ offensive tackle Michael Theokas, RC’95, has owned restaurants and had a budding political career as a borough councilman in Hightstown. But the lure of public service led him to leave the restaurant business to become the borough’s fulltime business administrator last year.

Despite his wide-ranging experience as a businessman and public official, Theokas felt he could use some additional coaching for his new role.

“When I got the job in Hightstown, I immediately looked to learn more about this field and improve my job performance,” he said.

The “mini” master’s in public administration – Mini-MPA™ – a noncredit certificate program offered by Rutgers’ Center for Executive Leadership in Government at its headquarters in downtown New Brunswick, fit the bill.

Theokas completed the program last spring and says he learned “a great deal” from it.
