This web-based course is a prerequisite for the resident classroom course PER-316 “Radiological Accident Assessment Concepts (RAAC).” As such, this course provides only an overview of key concepts that will be addressed in more depth in the classroom course.

In this course, you will learn how to assess the offsite radiological consequences to the public following a release of radioactivity from nuclear power reactors and non-reactor incidents, and how to use this assessment as a basis for recommending protective actions to decision makers.

Please note that this course will take approximately 16 hours to complete. It is recommended that you plan on taking the course in multiple sittings.
