This certificate allows opportunities for students and professionals (e.g., employed by the military or in the nuclear sector) who are interested in obtaining basic knowledge of radiological and nuclear safety for specific applications in their workplace to further their education and training in their individual sub-fields without having to complete the formal requirements of a comprehensive graduate degree. Completing the certificate allows the students to have this credential appear on their transcripts, which may serve as confirmation for their employer of their professional training. Also, credits earned in the course of completing the graduate certificate may be applied towards fulfillment of the requirements for a graduate degree at a later date.
