POL 101 Introduction to American Government
3 Credits
This introductory course provides a study of the foundation of
the United States government and the evolution of constitutional
principles. Special attention is given to the three branches
of national government, powers and the limits of national
government, state’s rights and local control, public ethics,
political parties, voters, pressure groups, civil liberties and civil
rights, and public opinion. SP

RDS 101 Basic Radiation Protection Principles
5 Credits
A course in the physical and scientific principles fundamental
to radiation protection. This course provides the theoretical
background necessary to make informed decisions on the job
as a radiation safety technician. The class focuses on applied
physics, radiation production mechanisms, radioactivity and
its properties, radiation interactions with matter, radiation
quantities, units and measures, sources of radiation, exposure
evaluation and shielding concepts, and biological effects of
ionizing radiation. FA
RDS 102 Intermediate Radiation Protection Principles
5 Credits
A continuation of material covered in RDS 101. This
course covers radiation detection theory and operation,
external exposure control, external dosimetry, and survey
instrumentation; ALARA principles and shielding, internal
dosimetry, techniques, contamination control and monitoring,
airborne sampling methods and programs, respiratory protection,
radiological source control/radiography, particle accelerators,
and X-ray equipment. FA
Corequisite: RDS 101, RDS 103
RDS 103 Intermediate Radiation Protection Principles Lab
1 Credit
This course runs concurrently, supplements, and is required
with RDS 101/102. This laboratory takes the theory, principles,
and knowledge covered in RDS 101 and RDS 102 and applies
it to practical exercises, skills and abilities used by a radiation
safety technician on the job. The student will learn source
accountability, performance testing of portable and count room
instrumentation, performance and documentation of radiation
and contamination surveys, posting of areas to reflect current
conditions, issuing electronic dosimetry, conducting respirator fit
testing, and conducting radiological/ALARA briefings. FA
Corequisite: RDS 102
RDS 104 Advanced Radiation Protection Principles
5 Credits
A continuation of material covered in RDS 102. Students will
learn advanced principles including respiratory protection,
environmental monitoring, radioactive shipments, radiological
incidences and emergencies, radiological considerations for
first aid, air sampling, responding to radiological incidents and
contaminated individuals. SP
Prerequisite: RDS 102, Corequisite: RDS 104L
RDS 104LAdvanced Radiation Protection Principles Lab
1 Credit
This course runs concurrently, supplements, and is required
with RDS 104. Students will learn how to survey a radioactive
shipment, perform air samples, calculate air sample results,
respond to radiological spills and other radiological emergencies,
and use decontamination techniques on personnel. SP
Corequisite: RDS 104
RDS 106 Basic Radiological Chemistry
1 Credit
Students will become acquainted with the Periodic Table,
elements and molecular structure, basic chemical bonding and
chemical reactions, chemistry changes precipitated by radiation,
basic reactive plant chemistry, chemical balance of water, and
chemical changes brought about by heat, water quality control
and sources of impurities, plant corrosion, and radioactive waste
handling of liquids and gasses. SP
