This training includes Department of Transportation (DOT) requirements for transportation of radioactive materials and satisfies the requirements of Subpart H. A DOT exam is included. References from past students are available upon request. The three instructors of the course are certified health physicists with a combined 100 years of experience in their field. As RSCS principals, they operate a nuclear instrumentation calibration facility and an analytical measurement laboratory and also perform consulting for radioactive material licensees. Continuing education credits (CECs) have been approved by the American Academy of Health Physics (40 CECs) and the American Society of Radiologic Technologists (40 hours of Category A CECs).

DATES: 1520 March 2020

FEE: $1,495 (includes all materials, daily continental breakfast and snack breaks, and a catered lunch and social on the first day of the course)

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 AAHP CECs (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 percent 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 8:15 am–5 pm 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) NCRP reports. In addition to the materials used in the Part I Course, supporting materials (Background Materials Review, Additional Q&A Volume, and Part I CD) are available to assist a student's certification preparation. FOREIGN STUDENT ADVISORY: The course language is English. Translation services are not provided.
