Training and Qualification
Unescorted worker access to high and very high radiation areas may be permitted upon successful completion of
Radiological Worker I Training and High/Very High Radiation Area Training. Individuals who complete this
training should not be allowed to enter contamination, high contamination, or airborne radioactivity areas
unescorted, nor should they be allowed to enter soil contamination areas during activities that will disturb the soil.
633 Radiological Worker II
Site-specific Radiological Worker II Training should encompass at a minimum the following practical factors:
Donning of protective clothing, if applicable
Entering a simulated radiological buffer area, contamination area, and high radiation area to perform a task, if
Proper response to simulated abnormal situations
Proper response to simulated alarms or faulty radiological control equipment
Removing protective clothing and equipment and subsequently exiting the simulated area, if applicable
Performance of frisking for personnel contamination, if applicable
Verification of instrument response and source check.
Course length will vary dependent upon the amount of site-specific material.
634 Specialized Radiological Worker Training
Specialized Radiological Worker Training should be completed for non-routine operations or work in areas with
changing radiological conditions. This training is in addition to Radiological Worker II Training and should be
provided to personnel planning, preparing, and performing jobs that have the potential for significant radiological
consequences. Such jobs may involve special containment devices, the use of mockups, and ALARA
considerations. In some cases, dependent upon site-specific criteria, pre-job briefings provide an acceptable
alternative to Specialized Radiological Worker Training. The site-specific radiological control manual should
establish the appropriate criteria that require Specialized Radiological Worker Training.
