Radiological Control: Radiological Standards

COURSE NO: N02-004
COURSE PROVIDER: Gilbert Gedeon, P.E.
Radiological Control: Radiological Standards
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course, organized into three parts, presents information about the U.S. Department of Energy’s radiological standards.


Part 1 – Administrative Control Levels and Dose Limits. To accomplish DOE's objective of maintaining individual doses well below regulatory limits, challenging numerical administrative control levels should be established below the regulatory limits to administratively control and help minimize individual and collective radiation dose. These control levels should be multi-tiered with increasing levels of authority required to approve higher administrative control levels.


Part 2 – Contamination Control and Control Levels. Control of radioactive contamination is achieved by using engineered controls and worker performance to contain contamination at the source, reducing existing areas of contamination, and promptly decontaminating areas that become contaminated.


Part 3 – Posting. Radiological postings are intended to alert individuals to the presence of radiation and radioactive materials and to aid them in controlling exposures and preventing the spread of contamination. The types of postings required vary based on the application.


This 2 PDH online course is applicable to industrial engineers, design and construction personnel, and other technical professionals who are interested in gaining a better understanding of radiological standards.
Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understanding administrative control levels and dose limits
  • Understanding contamination control and control levels
  • Understanding posting provisions and standards

Course Quiz
Once you complete your course review, you need to take a multiple-choice quiz consisting of fifteen (15) questions to earn 2 PDH credits. The quiz will be based on Chapter 2 of this DOE Publication.
The minimum passing score is 70%. There is no time limit on the quiz, and you can take it multiple times until you pass at no additional cost.
Certificate of Completion

Upon successful completion of the quiz, print your Certificate of Completion instantly. (Note: if you are paying by check or money order, you will be able to print it after we receive your payment.) For your convenience, we will also email it to you. Please note that you can log in to your account at any time to access and print your Certificate of Completion.
