Radiation Safety Training consists of Modular Training and Annual Refresher training. The Modular Training has 5 training modules. The first 4 modules are required for all users of radioactive materials and the 5th module is required for all PI's in addition to the first four. Refresher training is required annually after initial training is complete.
Modular training sessions are scheduled approximately every six weeks. Sessions for Modules 1, 3, 4, and 5 are for testing purposes only and no formal lecture is given. You should review the material in the Radiation Safety Training Manual prior to coming to the testing session. Module 2 provides a lecture and hands-on training with a portable radiation detection instrument.
