MEIR course logoThe Medical Effects of Ionizing Radiation (MEIR) course is taught by a Mobile Training Team (MTT) of three instructors over a period of 3 days. Please visit the MEIR Description web page and the MEIR Brochure for additional information about the course.
Courses are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. The MEIR course is a training requirement for many DoD units. Requesting installations/units agree to allow non-tenant personnel (HRF, CERFP, CST, etc.) to attend the course. Exceptions may be made by the MEIR course director in special circumstances. Due to timing constraints, we can only support 5 CERFP courses per fiscal year.
A MTT may be scheduled at installations/units that meet the following conditions:
Anticipated 40 student minimum attendance from the installation/unit (OCONUS courses are case-by-case)
Suitable teaching area with space for 40+ students (classroom, theater, lecture hall, etc.)
Audio/Video capability in the teaching area
Designated host facility Point of Contact (POC) for further coordination
Request made at least two months in advance
Active Duty Installations/Units—The MEIR course is funded by the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Health Affairs (ASD(HA)) when hosted by active duty military installations/units. DoD military personnel, DoD civilians, National Guard personnel and allied military personnel are authorized to take the course free of charge. Civilians and contractors, may also attend for free, but only if there are open seats after all others have been seated.
National Guard Installations/Units—When the MEIR course is hosted by National Guard installations/units or the primary audience will be National Guard personnel, the hosting installation/unit must fund the MTTs' travel. The host site has the option to restrict which students may attend or allow all qualified personnel to attend. The forty student minimum criterion does not apply in this case.
Other Installations/Agencies—Federal and state government agencies may request the MEIR course, but will be responsible for all course-related expenses. Please contact the MEIR Director for additional information.
