- August 26-29, 2013
This four-day training course focuses on the methodology and practical application of the Multi-Agency Radiation Survey and Assessment of Materials and Equipment (MARSAME) standard. This standard supplements the MARSSIM manual that has become the basis for real property Final Status Surveys. The objective of the course will be to provide attendees with a solid understanding of the MARSAME standard, offer practice through exercises, and provide practical information related to its implementation.
Who should attend
This course is designed for those responsible for the design and execution of surveys for the release of materials and equipment from facilities that handle, or previously handled, radioactive materials. Individuals who would attend this course include health physicists, project managers and those providing oversight of the process such as regulatory personnel. A basic familiarity with MARSSIM methodology and/or terminology is helpful, but not required.
$1,595 — The tuition includes the full cost of training, books and instructional materials. Attendees will also receive a free copy of the PTP Electronic Library DVD.
The American Academy of Health Physics will grant 24 Continuing Education Credits for completion of this course.
