COVID-19 UPDATE JUNE 2020

DUE TO THE COVID-19 GLOBAL PANDEMIC, TRAVEL HAS BEEN AND IS STILL GREATLY REDUCED AND RESTRICTED. MANY FACILITY POLICIES PREVENT VISITORS & CONTRACTORS ON SITE.

If you have multiple facilities in multiple States, no problem, I just completed a webinar in May 2020 for a food processing facility with 50 x-ray operators and numerous RSO’s from seven (7) different States all at the same time. Originally I and all the other participants were going to travel to a single location. Using the webinar training services, they literally saved $10,000 or more in travel expenses for all of us.

You will need to purchase the regulatory required State specific Radiation Protection Program Manual developed for your x-ray equipment which we provide for all States and Canadian Provinces. We will mail you a flash drive and instructions on how to print your RP Manual in advance of the webinar training or you can save $100 and download your State specific RP Program from our RP Downloads page located on the Home Menu Bar at www.rcexraytraining.com. Be sure you chose the correct RP Program for your x-ray equipment, there is an RP Program for cabinet x-ray operations and another for Class A-Full Body X-Ray Security Screening Systems and they are significantly different.

The webinar will begin with the first course which is the 2-hour Cabinet X-Ray or Class A Full Body X-Ray Security Screening course depending on which you require. A 50-question exam is provided, in part, with every RP Program (required in California for ALL cabinet x-ray operators and required for ALL Class A Full Body X-Ray Security Screening operators in every State per the ANSI Standard). Your facility RSO can administer this exam upon completion of the course. There is an online Annual refresher course for each course for $50.

Once the 2-hour course is complete, we take a short break and those who require the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) training course will continue with the webinar and attend this course next. The RSO course takes approximately 3-4-hours or a little less. We go through your printed RP Manual, work instructions and forms, then we go through your State specific regulations and how each Work Instruction and form provided is used to meet a specific regulatory requirement.

For Class A-Full Body X-Ray Screening System RSO’s we will also perform a detailed review of ANSI N43.17 (2009) requirements.

RCE Consulting, LLC RSO and radiation safety training is specific to the type of x-ray equipment you possess. I do not go into specifics about radioactive materials or transport of radioactive material or anything else dealing with radioactive material because NONE of your x-ray equipment contains radioactive material.

I have over 40 years of experience and I have been teaching since 1981. We may be stuck at home or have site specific restrictions; however, no one is exempt from meeting the regulatory requirements for owning and operating radiation emitting equipment, so please allow RCE Consulting, LLC to help you meet your responsibilities through our cost savings webinar compliance and training services.
