Frequently Asked Questions for DOT Training

Who should complete this training?  When and how often?

Employees that prepare packages for shipping and transporters of radioactive materials must receive DOT training upon hire and every three years.

Do I need to complete the air shipment training?

The DOT training is divided into two sections: highway and air shipments.  Typically most people working in the nuclear pharmacy or nuclear medicine departments need the ground / highway shipment training, including courier drivers.  If the facility is routinely or even occasionally shipping via air (including Fed-X), the person that prepares the packages for air shipment needs additional training.  This includes Rb-82 generators, sending sources back to the manufacturer, etc.  Certainly, not a bad idea to complete both training sections to cover all the bases!

Do nuclear medicine technologists in the hospital have to complete DOT training?

Yes, the nuclear medicine department is considered the "shipper' when packages are returned to the nuclear pharmacy or manufacturer.

Does this program provide CE credits?

Yes, pharmacists and technologists can receive ACPE credits.  This program is also approved for nuclear medicine technologists to receive VOICE credit.

I enrolled in the program, but I have not received my confirmation email and password.
