The Needs - How You'll Benefit from This Course    View Commentary
Many in both undergraduate and graduate studies have not had a great deal of formal academic training in radiochemistry. There is an urgent need for formal education on both nuclear and radiochemical concepts. In the past, many learning opportunities at nuclear sites have consisted of on the job training which may have resulted in less than adequate training. The need for formal, world-class hands-on radiochemistry training is urgent.
  • Reduce lab costs through Increased Lab Efficiency.
  • Reduce Quality Failures the cost of questionable practices can be high!
  • Increase Market Stature through certification.
  • Market Penetration through development of a rare skill set.
  • Provides a high level of confidence through Formal Training that is almost non-existent in academia.
  • Gain a Competitive Advantage through a highly unique skill set.
  • This hands-on training will provide a life-long skill set that will Enhance Your Labs Reputation and the Bottom Line.

Hands-On TrainingThe Radiochemistry Society is dedicated to providing world-class training for the promotion of this rare skill set. You will receive step by step instruction on all aspects of radiometric measurements as well as laboratory safety. This unique hands-on training will provide the basis for highly effective radiometric operations. This course will provide well established principles for effective and proper radiometric laboratory operations. These ten days of training will provide a life-long skill set that will enhance anyone's career.

In this course you will:
  • Perform hands-on radiometric operations with seasoned experts on separations problems and challenges that are faced daily in radiochemistry
  • Develop a very rare skill set
  • Better understand which instrument techniques meet a specific radioanalytical need
  • Receive references to deepen your understanding of nuclear concepts and fundamentals
  • Learn methods of optimizing laboratory operations

Very comprehensive - liked the printed materials - think they will continue to be useful. I also liked how the instructor tailored (altered) the course as he went along to suit individual students needs.

I would recommend this course to anyone who is interested in expanding his/her knowledge and Hands-On experience in Radiochemistry. The instructor was very knowledgeable in the topics. I also enjoyed the opportunity at the follow-up review sessions for questions/clarifications.
