The purpose of the Introduction to Radiological/Nuclear Operations, AWR-140, course, is to provide awareness and operations level training to those participants, who in the course of their normal duties could encounter a radiological/nuclear incident. The course will introduce topics that are relevant to a radiological/nuclear operation: Radiation, Radiological/Nuclear Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) Threats, Recognition and Notification, Protective Actions. This training will provide the participant with the fundamental knowledge of radiation and give the participant the awareness level knowledge (defensive posture) to respond to a radiological/nuclear WMD incident. It will train the awareness level tasks - recognition, self-protection, notification and secure the area - as it relates to a radiological incident. This will be accomplished by explaining protective actions and presenting administrative and engineering controls/procedures to help minimize health risks during a radiological emergency.
The course also covers material found at the operations level and meets a large portion of NFPA-472 Annex D-Analyzing the Incident. Participants who complete this course (AWR-140) along with the CTOS Instrument Course and Operations Response to Radiological/Nuclear WMDs will have completed the competencies, behaviors, and tasks found in NFPA-472 Annex D and met the intent of the Standard.
