Training & Classes

Radiation Safety Engineering, Inc. offers a variety of training courses for users of both ionizing and nonionizing radiation. In addition to the courses listed below, we also offer DOT Hazmat training for workers who ship or receive radioactive materials and require this training. These courses are offered based on demand.

Radiation Safety Short Course – Classroom or Online

The single day (eight hour) Radiation Safety Short Course is intended for industrial users of radioactive materials and radiation producing equipment. The short course meets the Arizona Department of Health Services Bureau of
Radiation Control training requirements for users of radioactive materials and for performance of sealed source leak checks on industrial sources. The short course is also approved by the Mine Safety and Health Administration.  Click here for additional info & registration.

Radiation Safety Officer Course  – Classroom or Online (new!)

The 40 hour Radiation Safety Officer course is intended for prospective Radiation Safety Officers.
