About the Course

The general public often thinks radiation exposure only occurs in areas displaying "Caution: Radiation," or "Danger: Radiation" signs. Actually, as this online course explains, in addition to exposure in certain work places, each of us is exposed to natural radiation each day of the year. This eLearning course presents information about the types of natural and manmade (ionizing) radiation, as well as where radiation originates, its health effects, principles of protection, and components of an effective Radiation Protection Program.
