Worth 15 CES credits, this course provides advanced awareness and procedural training in the shipment of radioactive materials (RM) by all modes of transportation. Coverage here significantly exceeds the Class 7 general awareness training found in most general-purpose DG certification training, and assumes the student has already been trained and certified in general dangerous goods shipping requirements.

This training is not sufficient to qualify a person to classify RM, design packaging for RM or apply for Competent Authority approvals. This training provides general awareness of the following topics.
