Description

Gain hands-on experience with a variety of portable and laboratory radiation instruments.

Learn how to choose the best instruments for you needs, how to set up and ensure that instruments are working properly, how to use each instrument properly and appropriately, and how to calibrate each instrument.  Also learn how to interpret radiation measurements, ensure quality and troubleshoot instrument failures.

Most importantly, you will learn the many ways that radiation instruments can be misleading.

Portable instruments covered include  ion chambers, proportional counters, GM meters, and a variety of NaI, plastic, and ZnS scintillation detectors.

Laboratory instruments include proportional counters, NaI and solid state detectors, and liquid scintillation counters.

Did You Know...? Through our partnership with the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Department of Health Physics, you will gain hands-on experience at the University's state-of-art analytical lab*. We provide free transportation to the lab, which is less than 10 minutes away from our Training Center.
