- CBNC/ APCA Board application requirements. In order to sit for the CBNC/APCA boards it is required to complete an 80 hour Nuclear Cardiology Physics course. Including Radiation Safety. Classroom and laboratory training needs to include extensive review of radiation physics and instrumentation, radiation protection, mathematics pertaining to the use and measurement of radioactivity, chemistry of byproduct material for medical use, radiation biology, the effects of ionizing radiation and radiopharmaceuticals. There should be a thorough review of regulations dealing with radiation safety for the use of radiopharmaceuticals and ionizing radiation. This experience should total a minimum of 80 hours and be clearly documented.
USNRC and most agreement states require an Authorized User to have a minimum of 80 hours of classroom and laboratory physics training.
Our students also have continued online access to use the course as a Nuclear Cardiology Physics study review for their CBNC board exam.
