Welcome to this unique Radiation Safety Officer training course designed specifically for YOU and your facility which now own and intend to operate non-medical, security & industrial cabinet x-ray systems.

These non-medical, security & industrial cabinet x-ray systems are utilized primarily for security checkpoint and threat detection inspection purposes by the aviation industry, indirect air carriers, law enforcement, critical infrastructure buildings, casino’s, corporate mail-rooms, and cruise line ports. They are also widely used in the food processing and packaging industry, automotive and circuit board manufacturing industries.

At every facility, one individual must be listed on your State specific X-Ray Equipment “Application for Registration” form designating this individual as responsible for radiation safety at your facility, this individual is often referred to as the Radiation Safety Officer (RSO). You have been selected for this position and as a result, you must now gain the knowledge, information and materials you will need to implement and document an effective and State compliant radiation protection program. You have come to the right place !!

RCE Consulting, LLC offers a cost effective and complete turnkey radiation protection program solution and training materials required by all State ionizing radiation regulations.

My name is Steve Norris, the owner of RCE Consulting, LLC. I am a Health Physicist with over 40 years of experience in the nuclear power, nuclear waste processing and radiation emitting device manufacturing industry. As a Radiation Safety Officer myself for much of my career, I have worked for some of the largest corporations in these industries. I started RCE Consulting, LLC fulltime in July 2015 with the specific goal of providing regulatory compliance and radiation safety training services to YOU, the new facility RSO, and to your x-ray equipment operators.

There are numerous “Radiation Safety Officer courses” available to you which can be taken at an off-site location at a substantial cost or even online, however; they are NOT designed specifically for your application and therefore they provide you with very little information about your specific State requirements and x-ray equipment. They likely do NOT offer a comprehensive regulatory required written Radiation Protection Plan (RPP), procedures and forms necessary to implement an effective program like RCE Consulting, LLC offers. Our RPP is literally a “turnkey” service.

This Radiation Safety Officer course is laser focused on the applicable and specific regulations, requirements and information you will need to understand in order to meet your States regulatory requirements for owning any non-medical, security & industrial x-ray systems.

This Radiation Safety Officer training course combines the knowledge and years of experience I have obtained in this industry to address the specific requirements, issues, frequently asked questions and typical operator concerns most facility Radiation Safety Officers will encounter.

Before we get started, please know that in order for you to take this RSO course, you must first successfully complete the prerequisite 2-hour Cabinet X-Ray Operator Radiation Safety Training course, including the 50-question exam, offered on this website.


If you already have a suitable RP Program, please disregard the above and you can skip the first RSO course slide and you not need to download the Getting Started Manual for the Facility Radiation Safety Officer (RSO) although pages 7-17 of this manual will still be very helpful for explaining what you must do to implement a compliant RP program.

Both options are exactly the same and contain a regulatory required comprehensive written Radiation Protection Program (see your States “Standards for Protection Against Radiation” regulations), supporting work instructions, inspection & survey forms, a copy of your specific State regulations and all specific State registration forms, additional training materials and miscellaneous documents such as NRC Regulatory Guides, emergency procedures, annual audit checklist and instructions and a x-ray equipment disposal procedure.

You Can Order the Entire Program on Flash Drive for $895 by Contacting RCE Consulting, LLC at or call us at (O) 843-650-9724 or (M) 865-696-9117.

You can also access your State specific turnkey and comprehensive RP Program IMMEDIATELY for $895 by Downloading the entire Program from the page before you take this RSO course OR you can use your own RP Program materials. Make sure you order the RP Program for YOUR State and the RP Program for Cabinet X-Ray Systems and NOT the Full Body Security Screening Systems.

Be advised that this RSO course has been developed and the training provided is based on the assumption you have purchased the Flash Drive or downloaded your State RP program immediately since it contains EVERYTHING you will need to be compliant and successful in implementing your Radiation Protection Program.

If you do not need to purchase the RCE RP Program, that is fine as well. You still have to develop one and yours and ours should be very similar in content.

Purchasing is easy, safe and secure using the online payment portal using your debit card, credit card or PayPal account. For On-Site training request, simply contact RCE Consulting LLC directly for a quote at our Office at 843-650-9724, by Mobile at 865-696-9117 or send us an email to
