Description

Our RSO program provides the necessary training to run a radiation safety program covering the RSO duties and responsibilities, radiation fundamentals, dose calculations, regulations, handling/storage and security of radioactive materials, emergency actions, disposal, and more.  We are proud of our high student pass rate resulting from our expertise and ability to simplify complex technical and regulatory subjects.  Our courses deliver textbook materials combined with practicals to deepen the learning experience.  Graduates leave with the necessary resources, knowledge, and confidence to conduct a safe and regulatory-compliant radiation safety program.

This course meets all the training criteria of NUREG 1556 Vol 4, Appendix D.  It also reviews all the pertinent regulations covered under 10 CFR Parts 2, 19, 20, 21, 30, 31, 32, 37, 71, 110, 150, 170, and 171.  Students must pass a final exam with an 80% or better grade to receive a certificate.

The eLearn course is approximately 16 hours in duration so it can be completed in as little as two days.  Because of its highly concentrated form, the materials presented are equivalent to 40 hours of traditional classroom instruction; however, there is no 40-hour requirement for RSO training for fixed gauges as is often believed or promoted.  The 40-hour requirement is; however, very true for other types of nuclear devices, products, or services that are higher risk such as in medicine, research, and food/medical supply irradiation, etc.  These are identified in the other volumes of NUREG 1556.

COURSE VALIDITY
