    Changes Coming for NRPP Certifications

    NRPP Certification Council has determined it necessary to implement a mandatory ANSI-AARST Standards Overview CE requirement in 2023 for all renewing NRPP-Certified Measurement Professionals, Mitigation Specialists, Measurement Field Technicians and Mitigation Installers.

    The courses will be four CE hours each and will count toward the total CE required for renewal. This new requirement applies to certification renewals beginning July 1, 2023. An individual who is certified in both measurement and mitigation will need to complete both courses to renew both certifications. Completion of such overview courses will be required for all future renewals.

    The NRPP Certification Council has also revised the minimum CE requirement, from 16 hours to 12 hours, for individuals certified as measurement professionals or mitigation specialists, to provide parity with the 24-hour CE requirement for individuals certified for both measurement and mitigation, effective January 1, 2023.

    Revised Standards in 2023

    Thanks to the hard work of numerous volunteers and the staff of the AARST Standards Consortium, despite many hurdles, ten (10) ANSI-AARST Standards were revised in 2022. Two measurement standards (previously MAMF and MALB) are being combined into one measurement standard for multifamily, schools, commercial and mixed use buildings (MA-MFLB), and the same combination is being accomplished for the soil gas mitigation standards (previously RMS-MF and RMS-LB, now SGM-MFLB). The single family standards remain separate. The new versions will be available in the latter half of January.
