This course and supporting materials prepare candidates for the successful completion of the Part I American Board of Health Physics (ABHP) Certification Examination. Historically, our students have achieved passing rates that exceed the average exam passing rates. The Part I Course has been granted 40 continuing education credits (2018-00-001). The instructor, Dr. Bevelacqua, was an ABHP Part II Panel member, vice-chairman, and chairman. His experience gained in developing the certification examination and knowledge of candidate weaknesses have strengthened the content of this course and supporting materials. Examination strategies and techniques for successfully passing the examination are emphasized. Part I Course: The Part I Course is intense, with lectures followed by problem sessions. An exam-specific mathematical review is included with the course. About 30% of the course is devoted to problem solving with instructor critique and guidance provided to each student. The Part I Course materials include the Part I Self-Study Course materials. Class times are 0815–1700 each day. The Part I Self-Study Course contains 1,600+ problems with solutions, the textbook Basic Health Physics, detailed course notes, examination preparation materials, and a summary of recent (1997–present) National Council on Radiation Protection and Measurements (NCRP) reports.
