    Radon Mitigation Quality Assurance – Higher Net Profit and More Client Referrals - 8 hours

    Participating in this Radon Mitigation Quality Assurance Plan (QAP) workshop give you a strong customized plan that will save you money, improve your profit, limit legal liability, and increase customer satisfaction and referrals. This NRPP approved Category I CE workshop begins by providing you with a 50+ page QAP template on a flash drive. After you load the template on your laptop or pad style device, we spend about 90% of our time talking through and customizing a Plan for your business. You begin with the most solid and an exceptionally thorough radon mitigation QAP template and you end the day with the best advice available to be successful in business. 

    If you already have a QA Plan for mitigation, bring it for suggestions on improvement.  To get the most out of this workshop: 1. bring your laptop or pad style device with battery power to last 7 hours; 2. plan to offer and hear great suggestions; and 3. expect to have fun.

    $175 including Heartland Chapter AARST fee. $150 without fee.
