Restricted Shipper Training

Initial training

Personnel who need to ship radioactive materials to or from off-campus locations must receive initial training as required by DOT regulations in 49CFR Subpart H. Since workers are unable to package Type A shipments at remote locations, this training is normally applicable to persons shipping limited quantities of radioactive material.

Shipper training will be provided by the Radiation Safety Officer or an Assistant Radiation Safety Officer.  The training sessions are scheduled as needed.  Call or email Radiation Safety at 737-2227 to request shipper training.

Refresher Training

Personnel shipping radioactive materials must receive refresher training at intervals not to exceed three years. Refresher due notices will be sent from the Radiation Safety Department prior to the refresher due date.  Contact Radiation Safety to schedule refresher training.
