You may take this test if you
have completed the web-based Sealed Source Radiation Basics Training Modules.
Completion of this test does not certify
you to use any other radioactive materials except sealed and plated sources.
If you plan to use unsealed sources of radioactive material, you must complete
the Initial Radiation
Safety Training Program.
The Sealed Source Radiation Basics
Test has been developed to allow people who will use sealed and plated
radioactive sources at the University of Washington to demonstrate at their convenience
a reasonable understanding of the basic properties of radiation and of
the rules and regulations which apply to sealed and plated source use at
the University of Washington.
The questions for the test are
taken directly from the training material contained in the Sealed
Source Radiation Basics Training Modules located at the
If you have taken radiation safety
training at another institution, you must read about the rules, regulations
and the administration of the University of Washington's radiation safety program,
the dosimetry program at UWMC and HMC, and the guidelines and requirements
for handling sealed sources:
at the Government Regulations portion of the Modules
This is a 15-20 question multiple-choice
test. The test has been constructed so that you must successfully
answer a question before you can move on to the next question. If
you answer a question incorrectly, the computer screen will direct you
to the portion of the Training Module with the correct information.
You may then use the 'Back' key at the top of your browser to return to
the question and correct your answer.
At any point you may quit the
test, but you will not be able to save the work you have done up to that
point. If you quit the test and then decide to take it again, you
must start from the beginning.
When you reach the end of the
test, you will be prompted to fill out a Test Completion Form with your
name, department, supervisor and the last four digits of your social security
number. This Form is electronically submitted to EHS who will forward it to Radiation Safety.
After the Test Completion form
is e-mailed to EHS, EHS will e-mail you and your supervisor with a notification
that you are authorized to begin work using sealed or plated sources.
