1-Day Multi -Agency Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Manual Training
The Multi-Agency Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Manual (MARSSIM) is a DOD, DOE, EPA, and NRC technical consensus guidance document that provides the methodology used to demonstrate compliance with dose- or risk-based regulations. This course supports the MARSSIM objective to bring about a nationally consistent approach for conducting radiation surveys and investigations at potentially contaminated sites nationwide.
This awareness-level one-day course, presented by nationally recognized authorities is designed for managers responsible for developing, reviewing or implementing MARSSIM survey plans.
Keeping the perspective of managers in mind, the following MARSSIM topics will be discussed:
- Overview of the Radiation Survey and Site Investigation Process
- Data Life Cycle
- Integrated Survey Design
- Interpretation of results
In addition, a lessons learned session focuses on identifying and avoiding common pitfalls found in MARSSIM survey plans. Handouts, references, and a copy of the MARSSIM manual are provided. Participants will receive .8 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for completion of this course.
