Next Offering

Start Date: January 10, 2022
End Date: February 28, 2022

Radiation Safety and Radiological Instrumentation is one of three non-credit courses in the Certification in Radiological Engineering and Health Physics (CREHP) program. This course can be taken individually, or as one of the three courses required to receive the CREHP certificate of completion.

The course is taught by faculty from The Ohio State University. The course is delivered in 100% distance learning format and includes instructional material equivalent to a one semester credit hour class.  

You will learn:

1. Explain principles of radiation safety and shielding.
2. Radiation safety, radiation protection philosophies and regulations.
3. Radiation detection and associated instrumentation.
4. Principle of dosimeters and advanced applications.
5. Introduction to production of radionuclides and radioisotopes.

Expected Time Commitment to Complete this Course

Each course is equivalent to a one semester credit hour class. Therefore these courses consists of approximately 40 hours of class time. That includes 12-15 hours of recorded faculty lectures and 22-25 hours of additional course work. Each week there is 5.7 hours of combined class time (40 hrs / 7 weeks). The average student should allow a 2:1 study-to-class-time ratio to complete the course. This means you should plan to study two hours for each one hour of class time. This equates to 11-12 hours per week to complete all course work. (5.7 hrs X 2 = 11-12 hrs).  Based on your own personal strengths and experience, you should increase or decrease the ratio.

Prerequisites

A bachelor's degree in engineering or a related field is strongly recommended.
