NDT Classroom, Inc. Radiation Safety training is a completely video-based online course taught by certified trainer/radiographer Walt Cofer. The course is intended as initial or refresher training for individuals pursuing industrial radiographer radiation safety certification and for anyone interested in understanding the basic principles and applications of industrial radiation safety. The course addresses required training topics for radiographic personnel specified in U.S. NRC (10 CFR 34.43) and equivalent state radiation control regulations. Completion of the course addresses the 40-hr. training prerequisite for radiography certification exams by combining 28 hours of online training with 12 hours of hands on training, and training on O&E procedures, radiographic equipment and applicable state regulations.
The course provides an understanding of the basic principles and fundamentals of radiation safety applicable to industrial radiography. Learning outcomes are assessed at the end of each lesson and a comprehensive 100-question multiple-choice final exam. The course concludes with a 100-question exam. The student must receive a passing score of 70% to be considered prepared for the formal exam from a certifying entity.
The training is divided into 12 lessons:
1. Atomic Structure and Types of Radiation
2. Radiation Properties and Interactions with Matter
3. Radiation Units and Terminology
4. Sources of Ionizing Radiation
5. Biological Effects of Ionizing Radiation
6. Radiation Measurement and Instrumentation
7. Protection Against Ionizing Radiation
8. Radiation Control Regulations
9. Radioactive Material Transportation Regulations
10. Radiographic Equipment (X-ray and Isotope)
11. Radiation Safety Programs and Procedures
12. Case Histories of Radiography Incidents
NOTES: Recommend Reading assignments are provided for each lesson, which are listed at the beginning of the course. Completion of the readings and self-study is strongly encouraged and will add to the overall training benefit and time to be credited. It will also better prepare the student for the practical/hands-on session. It is recommended that the student keep a log of self-study time. It is also recommended that the applicable RSO be involved and confirm that the reading and self-study assignments have been completed. This should become a part of the student’s training records, which may become part of a radiographer certification exam application.
Approved for use within approved training programs in all of the following Certifying States: Texas, Louisiana, Georgia, Alabama, Illinois, Oklahoma, Iowa & Maine. This course was designed so that students can typically retain 25% to 60% more of the information as compared to traditional classroom training.
