Price: $25 / $20 PDF (AAPM Members FREE)
Category: Reports

This Report is concerned with the training of industrial radiographers and is devoted principally to those aspects of training that will provide the means to minimixe radiation exposure of human beings. The Report is intended as a guide for training persons in the safe use of sources of radiation for industrial radiography. The Report should be applied with sound judgment to formulate a training program that is responsive to particular needs. Important considerations that should be reviewed in formulating an appropriate and responsible training program include management practices, the equipment to be used, and applicable regulatory requirements. Provision should be made for continuing training in both a refresher and an updating fashion. Continuing education joined with increasing experience provides the proper foundation for optimizing worker performance with respect to both productivity and safety.
