Modular Emergency Response Radiological Transportation Training

Instructor Jason Lively

Cost: N/C

Class will meet on Oct. 21 and 22 at 9:00am till 5:00pm each day

This 16-hour training program is designed to take the complex topic of a radiological accident response and break it down into 16 easily understood modules and hands-on practical exercises.  Students are presented with a simplified approach so they can develop a comprehensive understanding of radioactive material, radiological survey instruments, decontamination techniques for handling radiologically contaminated victims, and resources available to responders during a radiological transportation incident response.  An important element of the training is detailed information on the types of packages used to transport radioactive material and the markings, labels, and placarding of radioactive material shipments.  The course includes use of “live” radiation sources in the practical exercises to reinforce learning.  Upon successful completion of the MERRTT course students will receive a certificate from the Department of Energy’s Transportation Emergency Preparedness Program, including up to 10 hours of continuing education hours (CEH) for medical response personnel.
