- there would
be free food !!!
- For the next 2 sessions, I would be giving

These should be completed before attending the first

Environmental, Health and Safety Services (EHSS) site and register for
X-ray Equipment class. Then
complete the Radiation Safety course through Blackboard. (This
class can be completed ONLINE; you do NOT have to attend any lectures.)
A radiation badge will be assigned to you and it must be worn
at all times when using the scanners. Allow for some time
for EHSS to deliver badges - usually your badges
are directly mailed to us

need to get a security key card for building access. For more details,
read the section on "Physical Access" at the NCFL site.
