Valid from/to
LN-200 is a two day workshop that builds upon the concepts that were introduced in LN-100. The primary objective of this course is to provide an opportunity for students to understand the Federal Radiological Monitoring and Assessment Center (FRMAC) product suite to a level that enables them to brief them to non-technical audiences. Students will actively participate in discussion during the lectures, as well as spend significant course time practicing the concepts. Lecture time will focus on the more technical and complicated topics in which a FRMAC liaison may be expected to provide assistance with while briefing maps and attending meetings. Successful completion of the course will require active participation in the learning activities and passing a final exam.
