the Staglin Center MRI Safety training Process

Becoming Safety certified requires three steps:

  1. Learn about MRI Safety - chiefly by viewing the safety video below, supplemented by study of some of the relevant written material, especially the documents indicated with an asterisk below (*)
  2. Take a written MRI safety exam
  3. Take a practical exam on safety within the laboratory

Safety Certification must be renewed annually, generally by taking an additional written exam.

NOTE: People who have current safety training at the Brain Mapping Center are exempted from further tests until January 1, 2011.
