This course offers advanced training for experienced RSOs, health physicists, and specialists in radiation safety who have previously completed a 40-hour RSO course (or equivalent experience).
In this class, you will gain a deeper understanding and increased confidence as an experienced RSO. You will review practical, real-world assessments of radiation safety programs, radiation safety and licensing regulations, risk assessment, probability of causation, and dosimetry based on pertinent reports from ICRP, NCRP, IAEA, IRPA, UNSCEAR, EPA, and BEIR.
Other topics include HAZMAT and emergency response, radioactive and mixed waste management, bioassay programs, ALARA programs, DOT shipping and receiving requirements, BEIR reports, risk communication, safety program implementation, review of NUREGs, MARSSIM and decommissioning, dosimetry review, risk assessment, laser safety, and radiation litigation avoidance.
You will also become more familiar with radiation detection instrumentation, including troubleshooting, calibration, QA, and data interpretation.
The course will include potential electives drawn from Dade Moeller Training Academy courses on NORM, Radiation Risk Communication, Counseling Radiation Workers, Training for the Radiation Safety Trainer, HAZMAT Response, and DOT Shipping and Receiving.
