Newly updated course content and electives. If you work at a hospital or medical facility, you might want to consider attending our Medical Radiation Safety Officer course.

We have offered this training for over 20 years to qualify you as a Radiation Safety Officer.  We provide the technical information and practical experience to ensure that you are well prepared to serve as an RSO. Instructors specialize in training for research, medical, biomedical, and educational programs, as well as for programs using sealed sources in irradiators, measurement devices, and gauges. 

Through lectures, hands-on laboratory exercises, and extensive reference materials, this course will give you the technical information and practical experience necessary to ensure that you are well prepared to serve as an RSO and will meet the requirements of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, Agreement States, and the U.S. Department of Transportation.

During the week, students must complete 32 hours of instruction in the following required subjects: radiation fundamentals, health risks, regulations, licensing, enforcement, dosimetry, instruments, statistics, quality assurance, DOT shipment and receipt of radioactive materials, program management, record keeping, emergency response, and preparing for inspections. Students must also complete 8 hours or more of instruction from the 23½ hours of elective subjects as shown on the Agenda.
