Course Description

The primary focus of this course will be the instrument operation skills needed by the first responders when responding to radiological or nuclear incident. This course serves a dual role for the response community. For the new responder the course provides a general overview of detection equipment, its selection, and its general operation. New operators should continue with their response training in order to gain the proper knowledge required to operate safely in the read/nuc environment. For the experience operator, the course provides a refresher on multiple detection platforms. The training will encompass basic operations of the following: dosimeters, Personal Radiation Detectors (PRDs), Human Portable Radiation Detectors (Backpacks), survey meters, portal monitors, and Radio-Isotope Identifier Devices (RIIDs).

Course Objectives

This course will enable the participants to select the appropriate instrument for a specific mission and use the instrument in performance of that mission.
