PER-243 Primary Screener/Personal Radiation Detection (PRD)
Tuesday, April 14, 2020
This 8-hour instructor-led, exercise-based course is designed to train the Preventive Radiological/Nuclear Detection (PRND) mission using a personal radiation detector (PRD) to perform a preliminary radiological assessment. Responders operate PRDs to detect radiation, verify the radiation alarm, localize the source of radiation, measure the radiation level, and assess the threat status of the situation. Participants employ PRDs to help adjudicate potential threats regarding situations with people, vehicles, packages, and facilities. Additional information regarding PRND operations in maritime environments is available and included as needed. Sealed radioactive sources are used during drills and practical exercises. These sources are intended to simulate types of radioactive material that may be encountered in the public domain. Course content includes a primary screener’s role in the Global Nuclear Detection Architecture and the National Preparedness Core Capabilities.
