Description

Over the past few years economic and technology conditions have lead to significant changes to the prevailing business models.  One of the results of these changes has been the consolidation of responsibilities and the integration of related programs.  This consolidation has lead to the need for both government and corporate policymakers to make crucial decisions in topical areas outside of their educational or occupational experience.

 

This situation is prevalent in the area of Radiation Protection because of the diverse scope of activities that involve radiation and radioactive materials, the wide range of organizations and institutions that use such machines and materials, and the paucity of individuals currently being trained in this area. 

 

This four day course is designed to familiarize all levels of policymakers from all types of organizations and institutions with the fundamentals of radiation protection without using mathematics at a burdensome level.  The objective of the course is to cover a wide range of radiation protection topics, focusing on the ones that are the most often the basis of programmatic decision making.  Evening opportunities to discuss individual class participant interests are integrated into the course schedule.

 


Audience

Anyone in any branch of government that is involved in making decisions related to nuclear or radiation matters. These individuals might be legislators, legislative staff, executive branch advisors, attorneys. A current example is people who are involved in all of the governmental decisions that are being made in the world in response to the Japanese nuclear situation. Media people would also benefit from this course.
