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.
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.
