• Record keeping and documentation requirements for radiation safety programs

• RPS requirements, including the duties and responsibilities of radiation protection supervisors

• Local rules and site-specific requirements for radiation safety

• TLD, or thermoluminescent dosimetry, which is used to measure radiation exposure

• Passbook, or personal radiation monitoring, which is used to track an individual's exposure to radiation

• Changing the isotope and how to safely handle and dispose of radioactive materials

• Site situations and how to apply radiation safety principles in different settings

The ARS course is a comprehensive and challenging training program that will provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to work safely with radiation.
