Radioactive Material Training

All University of Minnesota faculty, staff, and students who require access to areas where radioactive materials are used or stored must complete the on-line training module, Radiation Safety Orientation. This module serves as a prerequisite to the training listed below.

Anyone who requires authorization to use or handle radioactive materials must also successfully complete the on-line training module, Radiation Safety for Radioactive Material Users.

Upon successful completion of this on-line training an individual will be authorized to work under a Radioactive Materials permit at the University provided they have completed and documented specific protocol and lab orientation. The "Record of Training" form may be used to document this initial orientation and the annual refresher training that is required.

The Radiation Protection Division (RPD) offers annual, in-person training as a part of its audit processes. The RPD can also customize training sessions for individual departments, facilities or groups that need training in a specific area. For more information contact DEHS at (612) 626-6002 or
