SU-470 Genie 2000 - Basic Operation
image

June 9 - 12, 2020
Meriden, CT

Mirion’s SU-470-4 training course was designed to provide introductory-level instruction for using Genie 2000 software to perform typical gamma spectroscopy measurements. This course starts with a short review of basic gamma spectroscopy concepts, common Genie 2000 measurement applications, and the Windows operating system environment. It then covers the use of the Genie 2000 MCA Definition, Certificate File, Nuclide Library, and QA File editors. This course emphasizes use of the interactive Genie 2000 software environment for performing spectral data acquisition, system calibration, spectral file analysis, and reporting of measurement results. Approximately 65% of this 4-day course will be presented in lecture format, with the remaining 35% allocated for group discussion and practical exercises.

SU-474 Basic ISOCS Measurements
image

June 9 - 11, 2020
Concord, Canada

Mirion’s SU-474-3 training course was designed to introduce the basic features of the ISOCS Efficiency Calibration Software and the use of ISOCS for in situ gamma spectroscopy measurement applications where traditional “source-based” calibrations may not be practical. Students will also be introduced to additional Mirion software features and specialized hardware components that are typically integrated with the ISOCS software. Approximately 60% of this 3-day course will be presented in lecture format, with the remaining 40% allocated for group discussion and practical exercises.

SU-477 LabSOCS Measurements
image

October 27 - 29, 2020
Henderson, NV

Mirion’s SU-477 training course was designed to provide comprehensive instruction for proper use of the LabSOCS Efficiency Calibration Software. This course will focus on proper selection and use of the standard LabSOCS geometry templates for accurate modeling of samples and creation of optimized efficiency calibration files. Lecture and discussion topics will include: use of the “Geometry Composer” interface, typical applications for LabSOCS sample geometry templates, tips for proper template parameter entry, use of the Materials Library editor, and proper use of LabSOCS calibration files within Genie™ 2000 software. Common sample geometries (including paper disk, charcoal-filled air filter cartridge, polyethylene bottle, and Marinelli beaker) will be selected as practical examples to demonstrate the complete LabSOCS efficiency calibration process. Cascade summing corrections will be discussed as a method to improve the accuracy of nuclide activity calculations during routine sample analyses. Approximately 60% of this 3-day course will be presented in lecture format, with the remaining 40% allocated for group discussion and practical exercises.

SU-570 Apex-Alpha/Beta Operations
image

July 14 - 15, 2020
Concord, Canada

 

This 2-day course focuses on the Apex-Alpha/Beta software setup, database interaction and automated sample processing operations utilizing a combination of lecture and practical examples for instruction. Approximately 50% of the class time will be allocated for hands-on exercises to help reinforce the concepts needed to count and report gross alpha and beta results. The training will cover the architecture of the Apex-Alpha/Beta software, installation, operational setups, calibrations, security, reports, QA, data review, and event logging. Discussions will also include supported modifications to the standard Apex-Alpha/Beta Stimulsoft reports..

SU-890 iCAM Operations
image

October 14 - 15, 2020
Aiken, SC

 

This 2-day course is designed as an introduction to common air monitoring concepts, featuring detailed instructions on iCAM calibration and maintenance functions. The course begins with an introduction of the Mirion iCAM instrument, including a description of all components and theory of operation. Potential fault and alarm indicators will be discussed, as well as how to address problems that could arise during operation. After reviewing the hardware components, the iConfig software will be demonstrated to show the functionality of this power configuration tool. Once the iCAM setup is complete, the course will cover options and methods for calibrating the instrument, including alpha and beta calibrations along with airflow calibrations. Each step will be explained and students will be able to calibrate the instrument during a “hands-on” lab portion of the course. Other topics for discussion will include evaluation of calibration results and routine iCAM maintenance procedures. Approximately 40% of this course will be presented in lecture format, with the remaining time allocated for “hands-on” exercises and discussion.
