All health physics trainees actively participate in the formal
Nuclear Science Center Radioactive Shipper Training Program leading
to qualify as a radioactive shipper. Trainees are required to
successfully complete the requirements for radioactive shipper by
the end of the regular semester (spring or fall) following the date
of hire. Failure to meet these requirements will result in
termination of employment.
Health physics trainees support equipment operation and care by
assisting with calibration of detectors and detector systems;
performance testing of detectors and detector systems; and
operating detectors and detector systems for both safety and
quantifying activity level of radioactive material.
Trainees assist in radiation-safety compliance issues, including
documentation and radiation safety. Trainees also help maintain a
safe workplace by assuring area postings are correct and that work
is performed in accordance with radiation work permits, and by
ensuring that proper radiation dosimeters are available and used.
Finally, health physics trainees help maintain the facility by
surveying and decontaminating work areas on a regular basis.
Trainees answer directly to the NSC radiological safety officer,
the NSC health physics supervisor and the NSC duty health
All reactor operator trainees actively participate in the formal
Nuclear Science Center Reactor Operator Training Program leading to
a Nuclear Regulatory Commission-issued operator license. This
program consists of a formal lecture series with scheduled progress
exams and manipulations.
Reactor operator trainees prepare samples for irradiation,
handle radioactive samples and perform other tasks related to
Trainees will answer to the Reactor Supervisor, the Manager of
Operations and the Senior Reactor Operator on duty.
