Minnesota Announces School Indoor Air Quality Training

The Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) has announced School Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) Training to be held in September and October 2019. Attendees who complete the three-hour class will receive one hour of continuing education credit (1.0 CEU) towards their MDH radon measurement or mitigation license. This course is not approved for National Radon Proficiency Program (NRPP) or National Radon Safety Board (NRSB) credits. The training is being provided at no cost and is designed for:

· School officials, service providers, health professionals, and others who want to learn more about indoor air quality regulations, guidance and resources

· Public schools that need an IAQ Coordinator (expect to lose their current person or want a second person trained)

Details of the announcement follow:

School Indoor Air Quality Training

Public schools must have health and safety programs that comply with health, safety, and environmental regulations and best practices, including indoor air quality (IAQ) management. One best practice is that public schools have an IAQ Coordinator. This training will discuss the state’s best practices for school IAQ management. Continuing education credits are available for several licenses, including one hour for radon professional licenses.
