Well Logging and Tracer Study Personnel Radiation Safety Course
Course Duration: 24 Hours – Required by regulation/rule.
$750 per trainee – Fee includes manual
This course is designed to cover all
radiation safety training aspects for BOTH well logging personnel using
radioactive sealed sources AND tracer study personnel using loose radioactive
materials. The course is centered around
a training manual entitled “Radiation Safety Training Manual For Well Logging
And Tracer Personnel” written by John R Haygood. The training manual covers all of the well
logging and tracer training areas required by the Texas radiation control
regulations and is included in the fee. The manual covers health physics
basics at a low level and includes radiation fundamentals and characteristics,
radiation levels and dose, etc. It
covers the basic regulatory requirements regarding safely using, handling,
storing and transporting radioactive materials.
It also covers security requirements.
The presentation will consist of 6 sessions using PowerPoint
Presentation slides - consisting of at least 479 slides. The slides follow the
layout of the above manual. The training
will be conducted at meeting rooms in the Austin area, at licensees facilities,
or at meeting rooms near the licensees’ facilities.
Pop quizzes will be given at key times to
help the trainees to be able to assess their own progress, but will not be used
to determine successful completion. A 50
question multiple choice/true – false closed book exam will be used as the only
measurement of successful completion. A
score of 70% (35 correct answers) will be required to earn a certificate.
Short labs will be used to demonstrate
radiation survey instrument operation.
No licensable radioactive material will be used – only exempt check
sources. A few problems will be solved
in a lab format.
A training certificate will be awarded to the
successful trainees and copies will be forwarded to their employers
Certification of HAZMAT training will be
provided to meet US DOT requirements.
