Radiological and Nuclear Alarm Response Procedure
This 5-days Radiological and Nuclear Alarm Response Procedure course, which CBRN Academy has designed, will enhance participants’ radiation safety and security awareness and enhance their capability to detect ionising radiation and identification techniques. Furthermore, course participants will develop skills to detect smuggled nuclear or other radioactive materials while using Radiation Portal Monitors (RPMs) and Handheld Radiation Detection Equipment (HRDE).
HRDE, RPMs, and radioactive sources will be introduced to participants before moving to the field training module of the course. This part of the course also focuses on detection, alarm assessment, locating and identifying R/N materials (the source may be hidden inside a car, truck, container, cargo, or even smuggled by a pedestrian). This course can be adapted for staff who have different levels of experience in handling radioactive sources.
CBRN Academy instructors ensure all of our courses are adapted to the needs of individual organisations.
This course is recommended to be taken regularly (3-6 months) to refresh students with new techniques to mask and hide smuggled N/R materials.
Equipment and live source requirements:- Handheld equipment such as:-
- Personal Radiation Detectors (PRDs),
- Radioisotope Identification Devices (RIDs),
- Fixed Radiation Detection Equipment (RPMs), and
- Radioactive Sources (RS for live agents training);
- Gamma source and a Neutron source.
- The trainer may require additional props for practical exercises.
The above items will be required for the training course.
