Protecting the public from harm during a radiological event requires a thorough and well-designed radiological emergency management program.

Radiological Emergency Management brings together industry experts, government professionals, and renowned academic faculty in radiation protection and emergency management to provide you with skills and strategies to effectively plan for and respond to radiological emergencies at the federal, state, local, or individual facility level. This program is unique in bringing together stakeholders from across agencies, functions, and backgrounds for an intensive look at effective planning, response, and recovery from emergencies involving radioactive materials.

After sessions on radiation fundamentals and regulatory requirements, this program will provide skills and strategies for communicating about radiological emergencies, medically managing casualties of incidents involving radioactive material, managing terrorism actions, and supporting other organizations during these crises. Several interactive class activities and case-studies provide additional learning and hands-on experience.

This dynamic course offers an effective combination of lectures, case studies, and class participation activities conducted by knowledgeable and experienced instructors who are leaders in their fields. This program will enhance your capabilities and allow you to provide more efficient and effective oversight of radiological emergency management and response efforts.
