Certified Radiation Worker
All Certified Radiation Workers (RW) must receive appropriate training from a Certified Advanced Radiation Worker (ARW).
An Advanced Radiation Worker (ARW) is an individual who through appropriate training and experience is qualified and authorized to work independently with radiation sources and to supervise such use by others (e.g. laboratory radiation workers/technicians). You must receive documented training through the ARW to be designated a RW.

Keep a copy of this certificate in your laboratory.
Return a copy of the certificate to the Radiation Safety Officer.

Certified Advanced Radiation Worker
At least one Advanced Radiation Worker is required for each Radiation Permit.
An Advanced Radiation Worker is an individual who through appropriate training and experience is qualified and authorized to work independently with radiation sources and to supervise such use by others (e.g. laboratory radiation workers/technicians). Certification is obtained by completing four live training modules and passing the related exams. A minimum score of 70% is required on each exam. Trainees that fail to pass an exam may retake the exam once. If they do not pass the exam on the second try, the training module must be repeated. Certification is awarded to trainees that successfully pass all 4 exams. Annual online Refresher required.
