Basic Contamination Monitoring

1 Day Training

This seminar will begin with a short review of the operating principles, setup and calibration of the Mirion® contamination monitors. These principles can be applied and extended across the product lines. The required steps to properly setup, calibrate, alarm test, and trouble shoot and perform required maintenance on the monitors will be covered. Concepts are taught using lecture/demonstration format and hands-on participation by the user.

Who should attend

Technologists and supervisory personnel who are responsible for personnel or object contamination monitoring using any of our contamination monitoring systems would benefit from attending this training seminar. Attendees should have a basic understanding of contamination monitoring systems and programs.

How you will benefit

Attendees who complete this seminar will establish or refresh a solid foundation in the calibration, operation, and use of Mirion contamination monitoring systems. Supervisors and managers benefit from an improved level of understanding on the part of their technologists, ensuring a more reliable and defensible contamination monitoring program.


Attendees should have a basic understanding of radiation interaction with matter, the basic purpose of contamination monitoring systems, equipment, and their operational procedures. Attendees are encouraged to bring a laptop to run the contamination monitor demonstration program.
