Radiation Safety Training

Check for Dates and Register Online

Consistent with the regulations of the Maryland Department of the Environment (MDE), EHS requires that all radioactive material users successfully complete a radiation safety course of instruction. Any person who is going to handle radioactive material must attend. Any person who is not going to handle radioactive material, but who may frequent areas where it is used unsupervised must also attend. All radioactive material users are expected to schedule attendance in the radiation safety training course within sixty days of registering with EHS as a radation worker.

An exam will be administered at the end of the course. Participants will not be given credit for completing the course until they have successfully completed the final exam.
