Training

*If you are coming from outside of Berkeley Lab, make sure you let the Admin Office know (88Admin@lbl.gov). There is additional paperwork that needs to be completed.

Requirements:

1.) General Employee Radiation Training (GERT): All personnel at the 88-Inch Cyclotron are required to take GERT, which only takes a few minutes and can be found here.

2.) Building 88 On-The-Job Training (OJT):  All personnel are required to take Building 88's access training (NSD 439) before card-key access and unescorted building access is given. The training slides can be found below, and these must be viewed prior to your arrival at the Cyclotron for the hands-on portion of the training. Upon arrival, the Control Room Operator will provide hands-on training on dose rate meter use and cave search and secure procedures.

3.) Radiation Worker I Training (RW I): Anyone participating in 88-Inch Cyclotron experiments will need to complete Rad Worker I. This training can be completed online here. Once completed, inform the Admin Office (88admin@lbl.gov) so that you can be added to the Radiological Work Authorization (RWA). You MUST be added to the RWA prior to commencing experiment-related work. 

4.) 88-Inch Cyclotron Technology Control Plan (TCP): All personnel performing work involving Export Controls are required to read and comply with the 88 TCP.
