Radiation Safety Training

WSU personnel who work with radioactive materials and/or radiation machines are required to complete the radiation safety courses listed below.

The Radiation Safety Office offers separate courses depending on the type of use (see below).

This requirement applies to prospective authorized users as well as employees who plan to work directly with radioactive materials or radiation machines.

**NOTE** To obtain personal dosimetry please complete the Radiation Worker Application. A link to this application is at the bottom of this page.

 

Refresher training, awareness training, Waste, and gauge training is available below on-line.

Due to accessibility issues, all other training is only offered through the Radiation Safety Office.  For all other training, please send a request to radsafe@wsu.edu and a password to access the training will be issued to you.
