Safety Training

Safety training is required for all scanner users. This involves an initial on-site training session that includes a lecture, safety video, and a written quiz. Subsequent renewals may be processed online (see below). Safety training must be renewed annually by all active scanner users and safety monitors. If your MRI Safety training has expired, you will need to take the MRI Safety class at the IRC.
