Training: Radiation Safety in Industrial Irradiation Operations
The objective of the Radiation Safety in Industrial Irradiation Operations course is to provide participants with a basic understanding of radiation safety principles, procedures, and practices relevant to industrial irradiation operations. The course is designed to meet the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission (U.S.N.R.C.) requirements as part of the training of irradiator operators.
This course is primarily intended for irradiator operators, maintenance staff, and facility managers. It is also appropriate for senior management or owners who have no previous experience with industrial irradiation operations.
