Organization: IEEE
Publication Date: 7 November 2016
Status: active
Page Count: 80
scope:

This standard provides training requirements for four levels of training as part of the domestic capabilities of public safety agencies to detect, analyze, and report on nuclear and other radioactive materials that are out of regulatory control. This standard describes training requirements applying to these training levels across the range of federal, state, tribal, territorial, and local governments, and the private sector conducting the preventive radiological/nuclear detection (RND) mission to reduce the risk of terrorists or covert statesponsored attacks on the United States using radiological or nuclear weapons of mass destruction (WMDs). Of the preparedness capabilities described in Presidential Policy Directive 8: National Preparedness (PPD-8), the scope of this standard includes the capabilities for Prevention and Protection mission areas, but not those for Mitigation, Response, and Recovery mission areas. Within the Prevention and Protection mission area capabilities explained in the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (USDHS) National Preparedness Goal, the scope includes core capability for Screening, Search, and Detection.

In particular, the scope of this standard describes requirements for training on the operation and deployment of the following radiation detection instrumentation as used in the RND mission:

Purpose

This standard establishes minimum requirements and provides recommendations and guidelines for organizations that develop individual courses and training programs, deliver training courses, and administer training programs in the RND mission areas described in the scope (1.1). The standard describes the skills specific to the RND mission that are necessary for the core capability of RND Screening, Search, and Detection. This training is intended primarily for organizations involved in detection efforts.
