Welcome to the NORM SOLUTIONS LLC 4-HOUR NORM/TENORM SURVEYOR online training course! This course covers basic survey instrumentation and technique, without any NORM/TENORM management or in-depth focus. It is designed for facility employees who are performing basic surveys at their own facility (not for hire), for the purpose of material acceptance or denial into the facility. This course is NOT sufficient for on-site confirmatory surveys, release for unrestricted use, or NORM/TENORM decontamination purposes. If you are a NORM/TENORM worker who will perform decontamination, you can take the NORM/TENORM worker course or the 8-hour NORM/TENORM Surveyor course. If you are performing surveys in the state of Louisiana, then you need the 8-hour NORM/TENORM Surveyor course. If you are performing surveys in the state of Arkansas, then you need the 16-hour NORM/TENORM Surveyor course. This online course is designed for all education and reading levels, and is interactive! If there is any issue viewing the link, please e-mail Watch the video below for a sample of the videos associated with our course.
