Compressed Modular Emergency Response Radiological Transportation Training (CMERRTT)
February 6 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
This 8-hour compressed training consists of seven 30-minute modules and four hands-on practical exercises. Students will receive a comprehensive review ensuring their understanding of radioactive material, radiological survey instruments and decontamination techniques for handling radiologically contaminated victims. Hands-on practical exercises verify the student understanding and knowledge of radiological principles, instrument operation, decontamination techniques and employing radiologically contaminated patient treatment practices is solid. The course includes use of “live” radiation sources in the practical exercises to reinforce learning. Upon successful completion of this course students will receive a certificate from the Department of Energy’s Transportation Emergency Preparedness Program, including up to 5.5 hours of continuing education hours (CEH) for medical response personnel.
