Brief Description
This course is to train the PRND mission using a RIID to perform a secondary radiological assessment
Full Description
This course is designed to train the Preventive Radiological/Nuclear Detection (PRND) mission using a Radiation Isotope Identifier Device (RIID) to perform a secondary radiological assessment. Responders operate RIIDs to detect radiation, verify the alarm, localize the source of radiation, measure the radiation level, identify radioactive isotopes, and assess the threat status of detected material. Participants employ the RIID to help adjudicate potential threats regarding situations with people, vehicles, packages, and facilities. Additional information regarding PRND operations in maritime environments is available and included as needed.

Course Objectives
The goal of this course is to provide the Secondary Screener with the knowledge and skills to successfully meet the competencies and behaviors of the National Incident Management System (NIMS) Secondary Screener Typed position.

-Module 1: Participants will be able to summarize secondary screening and its role in the Global Nuclear Detection Architecture (GNDA), and in the Preventive Radiological/Nuclear Detection (PRND) mission.
-Module 2: Participants will be able to restate radiation basics that are required for performance of secondary screening operations.
-Module 3: Participants will demonstrate the ability to inspect, operate, and maintain a Radio-Isotope Identification Device (RIID) in performance of secondary screening activities or duties.
-Module 4: Participants will be able to integrate their training to assume their role of a Secondary Screener, Type 1, and initiate position activities within the steady state and enhanced steady state operational spectrum of operations.
-Module 5: Participants will be able to use suitable communication techniques to share relevant information with appropriate Preventive Radiological/Nuclear Detection (PRND) personnel and during direct contact with the general public.
-Module 6: Participants will be able to integrate (identify, analyze, and apply) relevant situational information (totality of the circumstances) and evaluate actions to complete assignments and meet identified objectives.
