Radcon Training - ARMS

ARMS Training Information


ARM qualification involves approximately one week of half-day training sessions, on-the-job training, a written exam, and a practical factors exercise.  You must already be RW-I qualified to become an ARM.

Classroom Training

ARM training is offered on request when multiple people require training.  Because there are multiple ARM training categories (FEL, halls, VTA, etc.), a class may cover topics which are not relevant to your particular work assignment.  However, the core radiation protection topics are the same for all ARMs.  To request that a class be scheduled or to be put on a waiting list, please contact
David Hamlette at 757-876-1743.

To renew your ARM qualification you need to attend a refresher class and re-take the written exam.  To request a refresher class or to be put on a waiting list, please contact David Hamlette at 757-876-1743.
