**This learning activity is a five part PowerPoint video presentation (see computer equipment specifications below). There is a post-test at the end of each activity that should be completed before moving on to the next section. All five post-tests must be completed with a passing grade of 75% to print your CME certificate.**

Our Radiation Safety Awareness Training course is designed to make it easy for you to obtain outstanding fluoroscopic safety and equipment training for you and/or your staff. This course is composed of eight hours of comprehensive training specific to  individuals operating fluoroscopy equipment. The training is available on the AHEC’s website in five new narrated video presentations that total 8 hours CME. Physicians and other healthcare providers completing all five parts of the course will receive a certificate of completion for 8 hours Category 1™ AMA PRA credit. This course is designed to enhance your understanding of radiation as a valuable tool that must be managed well to protect patients and staff in today’s use of medical fluoroscopic equipment. You will learn the principles of radiation protection and the biological effects of x-ray radiation. You will improve your understanding of operation and principles of the fluoroscopic system to include exposure (air kerma) outputs, high level control options, dose reduction techniques, and procedures for recording pertinent data.
