Nuclear Gauge Safety Certification Courses

Online Radiation Safety Course

Online Class

Humboldt’s Online Narrated Radiation Safety Course covers the same material as our Live Classes. So, if you can’t make a live class, this is the perfect alternative to getting your certificate of training. Humboldt’s Online Radiation Safety Class is accepted for the purpose of certification required for an operator to handle portable moisture density gauges. Those who successfully complete this class and quiz should possess the necessary knowledge of radiation safety and the operation of nuclear gauges. This satisfies the requirements of the USNRC and the Agreement States, for gauges manufactured by Humboldt and other manufacturers of nuclear gauges (portable moisture/density gauges).

Certification Test

This test can be used as a certification that the operator has successfully passed a nuclear gauge safety certification class, which covers the training criteria of NUREG 1556 and the Agreement States. This certification also includes a U.S. DOT HAZMAT refresher course, which meets the requirements of CFR Title 49, Part 172, Sub-Part “H” (includes IATA requirements) and is eligible for use in every State. A certificate of training will be issued to those who successfully pass the test (scoring above 80%), and includes a signature line for the company’s RSO to validate the training and certificate.
