With Covid-19 travel challenges for all industries, we've tried to bring a new source of distant learning to the RF industry. We have taken our extensive experience in RF Safety training classes and content and put that into our new online courses.
Our new RFSO course has been months (or years) in the making. After 30 years of teaching in-person classes, we have gone online. See the details below or contact us for a more detailed outline. Of course, we still teach in-person courses for our clients who want to learn that way.
Our classes are kept up-to-date by our IEEE membership in TC95 and our FCC affiliation. You can rest assured that our classes have the most accurate information and that we pass that information along to our students.
Courses are designed to be viewed on mobile devices as well as computer screens.
What are the duties of an RFSO? What information should be learned in a course designed to educate persons on this important topic?
How do we get from the International System of Units to V/m? Introduction to Voltage, Current, Resistance, and Power. Relationship between Electric and Magnetic constants and the speed of light.
The EM Spectrum, Ionizing and Non-ionizing spectrums and the inverse square law of radiation. Significant sources of Non-ionizing radiation.
Specific Absorption Rate (SAR), free space impedance, relationships between voltages, currents and power.
Basic concepts, terms, types of antennas, and field areas around antennas. Antenna beamwidths, patterns, and typical applications.
Define the effects that vary by frequency and depth of penetration. Learn about thermal and non-thermal effects. Relate the effects to Standards.
Learn about major standards and their basis for limits. Learn about whole-body and partial-body limits and specific FCC regulatory requirements.
Learn about the elements of an effective RF safety program and the pending new IEEE C95.7 standard. Learn about engineering and administrative controls, documentation, and record-keeping.
Learn about types of survey equipment available and when to use them. Common sources and magnitude of measurement errors, measurement types, and techniques. Tips to improve your accuracy.
Learn about signage, barriers, and safety at transmitter locations. Learn about new FCC signage and OSHA fall protection requirements.
Learn about the types of calculations, from manual to software-based, and when to use them—also using a combination of measurements and calculations in survey reports.
Identifying and dealing with cognitive biases, using effective communication practices, and coping with common misunderstandings of RF health and safety issues.
We are now offering a Radio Frequency Safety Officer course online. Learn how to qualify as an RFSO from this 30-hour
online course. Earn PDH credits upon successful
completion of this course. EME Safety, LLC is an
approved provider of IEEE PDH certificates.
Basic RF Safety Awareness training for general industry employees that includes common sources of RF energy and important safety concepts.
I really appreciate the manner in which the Radio Frequency Safety Officer (RFSO) class was presented. All Aspects of the course exceeded my expectations, including the PowerPoint content and the discussion surrounding the material presented. You provided the information in an easily understandable format, which allowed for questions that led to real-life examples I could understand. I also appreciated the smaller class size, which afforded everyone the opportunity to discuss questions and apply what they had learned during the field exercises. I came to the class with high expectations, and was not disappointed. Thank you for providing this valuable course!
