The Radiation Safety Training Manual is available as a study guide to prepare for Radiation Safety Initial Training, Rad Worker Training - Part II, and PI RAM Module.
Two-part training is required to obtain Radiation Worker certification:
It is highly recommended to complete this two-part sequentially.
To maintain Radiation Worker certification, the Radiation Safety Refresher training must be completed annually in Skillsoft.
Register for radiation safety initial training (Part I) Registration Instructions
The course covers basic radiation physics, instrumentation, biological effects of ionizing radiation, radiation protection principles and radioactive waste, among other topics.
Register for radiation worker training (Part II) Registration Instructions
This is an instructor-led training, offered monthly, reviewing topics from the initial training, plus use and selection of instrumentation, radioactivity calculations and decay concept. An overview of RAM use in the lab setting is discussed, as well as recommendations for record keeping.
To prepare for Radiation Worker Training - Part II:
Register for the RAM PI Module Registration Instructions
PIs seeking authorization to use radioactive material must complete this training, included in the latter part of the instructor-led Radiation Worker Training - Part II.
Register for radiation safety refresher training Registration Instructions
This Skillsoft course covers radiation safety principles, and serves as a reminder on best practices and radiation safety processes and procedures.
