Open Source Training Modules
You may take this test if you have completed the computer-based Open Source Radiation Basics Training Modules or have attended radiation safety training at any other institution. Completion of this test does not certify you to use radioactive materials. You also must attend the Radioactive Materials Safety Class, which is the classroom portion of the Initial Radiation Safety Training.
The Radiation Basics Test for Open Source Users has been developed to allow people who will use radioactive materials in open source form at Princeton University to demonstrate at their convenience a reasonable understanding of the basic properties of radiation and of the rules and regulations which apply to radioisotope use at Princeton University.
This introduction page contains the following sections:
The questions for the test are taken directly from the training material contained in the Open Source Radiation Basics Training Modules.
This test is designed to assess your knowledge of:
Go to the beginning of the Open Source Radiation Basics Modules
have taken radiation safety training at another institution but need
to read about the
and the administration of Princeton University's radiation safety program
and the Radiation Monitoring Program at Princeton:
The Test Format
This is a 15-20 question multiple-choice test. The test has been constructed so that you must successfully answer a question before you can move on to the next question. If you answer a question incorrectly, the computer screen will direct you to the portion of the Training Modules with the correct information. You may then use the 'Back' key at the top of your browser to return to the question and correct your answer.
Quitting the Test
At any point you may quit the test, but you will not be able to save the work you have done up to that point. If you quit the test and then decide to take it again, you must start from the beginning.
the Test (Radioactive Materials Safety Class)
The class is offered approximately every four weeks. Go to the Training Calender to see the next scheduled class.
In order to be admitted to the class, the test results must be received at EHS no later than 10 a.m. of the day of the class (test results are submitted via e-mail through a form at the end of the test) .
You may not begin radioisotope work until you have attended the Radioactive Materials Safety Class.
