Instrumentation

Operation and Calibration of Instruments

This 5-day course covers the principles for operating and calibrating hand-held detectors and different stationary detectors such as area monitors, tool monitors, and personnel contamination monitors.  The class will cover gamma, beta, and neutron dose rate instrumentation operation and calibrations as well as alpha, beta, and gamma contamination monitor operation and calibrations.  The class will provide a balance of classroom lecture as well as hands-on practical sessions using actual radiation detection instrumentation and the RSCS Training simulators. At the conclusion of the 40-hour course, a Course Completion Certificate is provided to document the successful completion of the course modules. There are no pre-requisites or required prior experience necessary to enroll in this course. References from past students are available upon request.

Major concepts to be covered in the class will include:

  • Nuclear Physics Review
  • Fundamentals of Radiation Detection
  • Principles of Operation of Radiation Detectors
  • Sample Analysis and Counting Statistics
  • Standards for Detector Calibration
  • Gamma Survey Meter Calibrations
  • Beta Survey Meter Calibrations
  • Neutron Survey Meter Calibrations
  • Contamination Monitoring Instrument Calibrations
  • Calibration Quality Control
  • Calibration Facility Operation and Maintenance
  • Instrument Use and Control
  • New Instrument Selection and Evaluations

Use of Instrumentation

This 3-day radiation detection and instrumentation course is for individuals employed in various aspects of radiation sciences including radiation protection operations, radiological emergency preparedness, and radiological laboratory analysis, and environmental management.  The course agenda includes both classroom training and workshop sessions to provide students with hands-on experience using various instrumentation. At the conclusion of the 24-hour course, a Course Completion Certificate is provided to document the successful completion of the course modules.

There are no pre-requisites or equired prior experience necessary to enroll in this course. References from past students are available upon request.
