DOT Training for
Nuclear Medicine Professionals


Quality Assurance Services, Inc. (QAS) provides training and testing for those preparing radiopharmaceutical residual materials for shipment. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) Notice #92-72 explains that: actions by the U.S. Department of Transportation (D.O.T.) impact NRC licensees that prepare radiopharmaceutical residuals for return to a local nuclear pharmacy; return molybdenum generators or unused doses to a manufacturer or supplier; return sealed sources such as flood discs or reference standards to manufacturers; ship radioactive waste through brokers; or transport radioactive materials. It may apply to licensees in Agreement States and licensing states also since it originated from DOT regulations and most licensing agencies implement and follow comparable regulations for compliance.

The training requirements in DOT regulations under 49 CFR 172 Subpart H - Training for HAZMAT Employees - is very specific and must include the following:

    1. General awareness/familiarization training

    2. Function specific training

    3. Safety training

Employees must be trained within 90 days of the new assignments. Recurrent training must be conducted at least once every three years thereafter. To assist employers in meeting this requirement, QAS provides online training and a quiz to demonstrate employee comprehension. The fee for this training is $150. After passing the exam, by answering 80% of the question correctly, a certificate will be emailed to you for the Radiation Safety Officer's files. The test may be taken one (1) additional time.
