Radiation Safety Certification is required for anyone taking x-rays in a South Carolina healthcare office, dental or veterinary. If your certification is from another state you still need to take this exam to become S.C. radiation safety-certified. If you are already working for or have a doctor who will sign off on your competency to operate an x-ray machine, you may register for this course and exam. You return here to log in, complete the exercises, and then take and pass the final exam. Your Certificate of Completion is then sent to you by email as a PDF.
