Training Sessions

Successful completion of MRI safety training allows faculty, staff, and students to be designated as official Users of the MRI facility. Users are then granted key card access to rooms in the facility, as well as access to the MRI calendar and system for managing radiological reads. Thus, safety training is required for all members of the research team, including PIs.

Upcoming Training Sessions

The Fall 2017 MRI safety training sessions are tentatively scheduled for second Tuesday of every month.  The tentative dates are: 

Tuesday, September 12,

Tuesday, October 10,

Tuesday, November 14, and

Tuesday, December 12.

The MRI safety training sessions will be held at 1 pm in the CCF-CIS conference room (PG5-126B).   Please send Diamela Arencibia (darencib@fiu.edu) an RSVP if you plan to attend.  Please allow 3 hours for the training session, which concludes with a short exam. Attendees must receive a score of 80% to pass the safety training course.

Please contact us if you have preferred days/dates for the Spring 2018 semester and we will try to accommodate such requests.
