Concerning TIEMS International Certification - TQC, the TQC Applicants may acquire required competencies anywhere they wish – past coursework or experience, independent study, or they may take on-line or in-person courses. As time goes by, TIEMS Academy will be providing access to an increasing number of courses relevant to TQC Competencies and references to places where the candidates can find relevant courses/studies for their preparation for TQC certification. TIEMS aims to make TQC an international effort and cooperation project, and TIEMS has therefore reached out worldwide in order to find International Education Partners, among universities and training institutions and other institutions and companies, which provide teaching/courses in emergency management and disaster response and can add value to TQC teaching courses/material. A Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is guiding the cooperation between TIEMS and these International Education Partners, and below is a presentation of those institutions TIEMS has an agreement with at present. Other teaching institutions with interest in TIEMS International Certification - TQC, and which provide teaching/courses in this field, are welcome to join us in the TQC development and spread out internationally. The courses provided by the TIEMS Education Partners are in addition to the courses provided in-house TIEMS and uploaded to TIEMS Academy.

Health Physics at Illinois Tech
Illinois Institute of Technology, one of North America’s leaders in online radiation safety and protection educational programs, now offers a Master of Health Physics degree with Specialization in Radiological Security, Emergency Preparedness and Response (RSEPR). This new track expands Illinois Tech’s well-established Master of Health Physics program (1997) to address radiological security and emergency areas. The specialization is based on Illinois Tech’s core health physics curriculum which includes applying radiation protection principles, implementing radiation protection programs, and assessing radiation exposure and human health risks. Students learn to monitor radiological release and environmental radiation, design radiation controls and measurement devices, and develop radiation protection measures for regulatory compliance.
The current curriculum of the Radiological Security, Emergency Preparedness and Response track emphasizes the expertise of the instructors and the accrued knowledge of the profession, including courses in radiological source security and management, and nuclear emergency preparedness and response. The program offers seminars by experts on field management of radiological emergencies. In addition, the curriculum addresses the qualification requirements for the United States Department of Homeland Security’s Radiological Operations Support Specialist (ROSS) Program. Graduates of the program will be ready to support ROSS qualifications necessary to: exhibit technical leadership in homeland protection, be rapidly deployed in emergencies, communicate recommendations to all concerned municipal entities, be familiar with state and federal agency protocol, and be integrated into incident command.
