It is Argonne policy that payment needs to be received before the workshop starts. Additionally, international attendees will not have access granted until a Visa is secured.

Sponsoring a Workshop

Course Description: This five-day training workshop provides technical personnel and managers with an overview, history, calculation methodology, input parameter requirements, and application of the RESRAD (onsite), RESRAD-OFFSITE, and RESRAD-BUILD codes. RESRAD-OFFSITE code is an extension of the RESRAD (onsite) code. The Gaussian plume air dispersion and groundwater radionuclide transport model will be presented as well as the off-site accumulation of radionuclides in soils and surface water body. RESRAD-BUILD evaluates indoor building contamination. Both deterministic and probabilistic dose analysis techniques and special features such as sensitivity analysis as well as code verification and validation will be discussed. Interactive computer demonstrations guide the participants through data input and output steps. Instructor support helps the students complete the hands-on problem solving sessions throughout the workshop. Training materials include presentation handouts, user's manual, benchmarking report, and problem workbook. All participants after successful completion of the training course will receive RESRAD (onsite), RESRAD-OFFSITE, and RESRAD-BUILD Training Certificates from Argonne.

Sponsoring a workshop requires 10-12 IBM-PC compatible computers and a meeting space. Workshops can be taught to groups of 10 to 25 participants, preferably two per computer. For information about sponsoring a workshop, please contact Charley Yu at 630-252-5589 or send email to

The Continuing Education Panel of the American Academy of Health Physics (AAHP) has granted 15 Continuing Education Credits (CECs) for the RESRAD (onsite) Workshop (Course Number 2012-00-003), 22 CECs for the RESRAD-OFFSITE workshop (Course Number 2012-00-005), 7 CECs for the RESRAD-BUILD workshop (Course Number 2012-00-004), 7 CECs for the RESRAD/RESRAD-BUILD Probabilistic workshop (Course Number 2012-00-007), 13 CECs for the RESRAD-RDD workshop (Course Number 2012-00-002) and 15 CECs for the RESRAD-BIOTA workshop (Course Number 2012-00-006). The approval for these is 4 years starting in 2012 (i.e. from January 1, 2012 to December 31, 2015). Credit for previous years' workshops requires a written request to American Academy of Health Physics, referencing the appropriate course number. The AAHP address is 1313 Dolley Madison Boulevard, Suite 402, McLean, Virginia 22101. Phone: (703) 790-1745; Fax: (703) 790-2672.
