A hands-on course for members of a nuclear emergency response team. Subject matter includes modules on basic nuclear physics, biological effects of radiation, response processes and capabilities, radiation detection equipment, contamination control stations, surveys, and command and control. The course culminates with three daily field training exercises during which students fully dress out in anti-contamination clothing, use RADIAC equipment, and perform realistic nuclear emergency team functions at DNWS live radioactive training sites. We welcome all military personnel and Federal employees occupying EOD, CBRN defense specialties and career fields, or other emergency response force positions.
