Site Characterization, Decontamination, and Decommissioning

Course Description
5-Day Course US$ 1895

WHAT is the Course about

This workshop is designed to enable you to manage a facility through the decommissioning process. The workshop includes environmental and radiological site characterization, site remediation, as well as decontamination and decommissioning. This workshop is comprised of two modules. The Environmental Module can be taken separately as a three-day course concentrating on the front end of the process, i.e., radiation data collection and environmental site characterization. The Decontamination and Decommissioning (D&D) Module can also be taken separately as a three-day course on the back end of the process, i.e., site decontamination and decommissioning.

The Environmental Module will cover all aspects of radiological site characterization activities, including radiation detection instrumentation, environmental sampling, and the use of the MARSSIM for survey design. Following site characterization, data are typically evaluated in the form of a radiological risk assessment. Several risk assessment methodologies, including RESRAD, RESRAD-BUILD, and CERCLA risk assessments from EPA’s risk assessment guidance, will be covered.

The D&D Module will cover D&D work plan development, a review of remedial technologies, NRC’s decommissioning standard and the D&D code, MARSSIM-type final status surveys, and decommissioning report development.
