Private Well Water Class via NEHA Cert Online Training

NEHA offered a

Radon Data Standardization Webinar

that discussed CDC’s radon pilot project

aimed at creating national data standardization for radon test results, showcased CDC’s new

Radon Communications Toolkit, and examined one state’s radon data collection through the

EPA exchange network. The webinar was attended by 154 people.

NEHA, working through the Rural Community Assistance Partnership cooperative agreement

with US EPA, added th

e Private Well Class

to NEHA Cert Online Training (self-directed e-learning).

The class was very popular and attributed to a 62% increase in participants learning about water

quality in FY16 (FY16=1,479 vs FY15=567 on NEHA Cert Online). The course, developed by the

Illinois State Water Survey at the Prairie Research Institute, University of Illinois at

Urbana-Champaign, covers the basics of private wells, how they work, troubleshooting,

and potential contamination issues.
