Radiological Worker Training
Contamination Control (Module 9)
This module is recommended for workers who require unescorted access to
Practical Factors Evaluations (Module 10)
This module contains generic practical exercises that provide hands-on experience
for the worker. These exercises are for the levels of training needed by different
Overview of Courses
The DOE training material can be divided into the following levels of radiological
Radiological Worker I (RW I) Training
This course contains the core academics and the appropriate practical factors.
This training is for radiological workers whose job assignments require access to
Radiological Buffer Areas and Radiation Areas. RW I training is also suggested
for unescorted entry into Radioactive Material Areas containing either sealed
radioactive sources or radioactive material labeled in accordance with 10 CFR
RW I training alone does not prepare the worker to work around higher radiation
levels or with contaminated materials. It is suggested that RW I tasks be limited
to inspections, tours, and activities that involve work on nonradiological systems.
Radiological Worker I Training with High/Very High Radiation Area Training
This course contains the core academics, the High/Very High Radiation Area
(HR/VHR) module, and the appropriate practical factors. The HR/VHR Area
lesson plan may be added to the RW I course to give personnel unescorted entry
into High Radiation Areas where contamination is not a concern.
