This program provides an excellent tool for establishing or improving an existing radiation safety training program. It follows the Nuclear Regulatory Commissions' 10 CFR 34 Appendix A training outline, and encompasses areas considered to be essential to radiation safety by the NRC and all agreement states.
Part I covers the origin of radiation, radiation measurement and control of radiation dose. A combination of media; text, videotape, overhead transparencies, instructor manual and student workbook - provide a comprehensive approach to this important area of training.
Course Outline: Introduction to Radiation; Characteristics of Radiation, Ionization, and Industrial Sources; Units of Radiation Measurement and Dose; Hazards of Radiation and Biological Effects; Methods of Controlling Radiation Dose.
The Instructor Package contains two video tapes, 60 transparencies, and Instructor Manual, examinations and an NRC textbook. The five lessons are each 2 to 3 hours long. The Student Workbook contains the reading assignments, examinations, a glossary of terms, and a hard copy of the overhead transparencies. A Preview Package contains one lesson from the Instruction manual, a sample transparency, and videotape excerpts from several lessons.
