One event on February 8, 2023 at 8:00 am
MERRTT provides fundamental knowledge for responding to transportation incidents involving radioactive material and builds on training in existing hazardous materials curricula. MERRTT satisfies the training requirements outlined in the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) Land Withdrawal Act. MERRTT is used for training responders along the WIPP corridors.
MERRTT has a modular design, consisting of 18 concise, easy to understand modules and 4 hands-on practical exercises. This design allows a jurisdiction to integrate the modules into existing hazardous material training programs. The modular format allows instructors to tailor the training to specific emergency response audiences. MERRTT is designed to provide instructor led or self-paced instruction. For instructor led training, instructional guides are available for each module.
