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 Radiation Regulatory Agency’s 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.
The course is available in both the classroom or online at a cost of $150.00 per person. The classroom course is typically taught at Radiation Safety Engineering on scheduled intervals throughout the year, but if a large enough group exists elsewhere, the course may be taught at remote sites for an additional fee. The online version of the course is broken into 13 segments and is available for signup and completion year round.
