Course Details: The course is designed to provide the technical and practical information needed to prepare a person to be an effective radiation safety officer. It will also be useful as general introductory training for anyone who works with radioactive materials or who may be required to be an alternate radiation safety officer.
Topics to be covered include atomic structure, properties of ionizing radiation, shielding, radiation and biological effects of radiation exposure, radiation detection and measurement, state and federal regulations, dosimetry, emergency procedures, records/documentation and transportation regulations. The course outline is available below in PDF format.
Continuing Education Units: Approved for Continuing Units by the American Academy of Health Physics, The American Society of Radiologic Technologists and the American Board of Industrial Hygiene. For the American Academy of Health Physics, the units granted are 32 C.E. Units, for the ASRT, it is 30.5 units and for the ABIH, it is 4.5 CM points. We will apply for Continuing Education Credits from other organizations if you will contact us at least 45 days prior to taking the course. Approval from other organizations is usually easy to get but some require that application be made prior to the course.
Units from the ASRT may be important to California residents because the state of California accepts these units in its program of continuing education required for renewing permits and certificates in radiologic technology. This is normally of interest to hospitals. Attendees should register for the course as early as possible. We recommend registration at least 60 days before the start date of the course to insure that you will get your first choice of dates and location. However, we do not have a registration deadline, so even last minute registrations can sometimes be accepted. You may pay by credit card, check or wire transfer. Please arrange for payment or a purchase order to reach us 20 days before the start date of the course. If there is a need to pay after the 20 day deadline, please call us to make arrangements so that we know that payment is being processed.
