Radiographer = RP Tech?
« on: Sep 29, 2003, 06:53 »
Hey!  One of the radiographers at work wants to be an RP Tech when he grows up.  Does any of his radiography time count towards ANSI 18.1?  ...3.1?  ...etc?

Gee, if you polled all the RP techs, I bet they'd say that you should subtract all his time as a radiographer from the total needed to be an RP.

Does anyone know the guidelines/requirements for RP Techs working at DOE sites? Do they vary with the different sites?
How much time do you need to be considered a Senior tech?

Iv'e worked with a lot of RT tech's over the years most don't have a clue about RP, but there is one dude that has helped me understand about the effects of using shielding and also knew about scattering of of high energy Cobalt or Iridium sources on various surrounding objects that can really screw up your postings. Does anyone know Duran Davis?

I know Doran Davis and is an excellant radiographer and really good to work with.  I just worked with him at Sequoyah's SGRP.  His crew was also great to work with.  As far as becoming a HP from being a radiographer.  I did it.  And not all radiographers are bad.  I had a great company that started me but was real strict with the rules and the training that we had. So don't judge them that they are all bad.  Doran Davis is a good example of that. ::) [smiley=egypt1.gif]

LOL Beer Court ;D  Being a good HP is alot more than just the RT stuff.  6 months sounds about right for most of the RT gang I've worked with.  They need to learn to see/use the newer meters(most have the ancients that look like they have been through the war)
