NEW MINIMUM RADCON PASSING SCORE   
The Radiation Control department has streamlined the radiation worker online training, printed version study materials and proctored examination materials. The lab has maintained a minimum passing score of 75% for Radiation Worker examinations for the past 20 years. In Jan. 2020, the lab will align our radiological testing requirements with other DOE facilities to increase the minimum passing score on all Radiation Control department examinations to 80%. 

In preparation for the increase in minimum score, the RCD has reviewed all test questions and has updated them for consistency with the new study guide and applicability to required worker knowledge. If you have any questions regarding this new policy, please contact Adam Stavola at x6806.

 

Which Level of Training is Right for You?

The level of training you need is generally based on the need for access to certain locations at Jefferson Lab.

 

A qualification called "General Employee Radiological Knowledge" is required for employees, subcontractors, guests, users, and others who may need routine unescorted access to the accelerator site. The minimum training for awarding this qualification is General Employee Radiological Training (GERT). All Jefferson Lab employees are encouraged to take GERT.
