General User Training

APS User Training Policies and Procedures apply to beamline personnel, experimenters, and other support personnel using beamlines and associated facilities (e.g., Laboratory/Office module labs). APS Users must complete five core courses, sector orientation, and any additional courses required as a result of their specific experiments as described on the ESAF.

The courses may be taken online, Click.

Experimenty Safety

All experiments require an Experiment Safety Assessment Form (ESAF) be submitted and approved prior to the start of each experiment.


Samples

  • Hazardous Materials : Hazardous materials are those materials considered hazardous by the US DOT, ANL,and the DOE. All hazardous materials that are brought to the APS must be declared on your ESAF. Contact Joanne Stubbs (stubbs@cars.uchicago.edu, 630.252.0427) or Bruce Glagoa (glagola@aps.anl.gov) if you have any questions.
  • Radioactive Samples : Please submit your ESAF early prior to your experiment start date, noting a complete description of the radiaoctive sample and containment.  Contact Joanne Stubbs (stubbs@cars.uchicago.edu, 630.252.0427) Bruce Glagoa (glagola@aps.anl.gov) if you have any questions.
  • Regulated Soil : Soil from foreign sources and certain locations in the US are regulated in their movement into and about the country because it could contain numerous diseases and pests.  Please submit your ESAF early prior to your experiment start date. Contact Bruce Glagoa (glagola@aps.anl.gov) if you have any questions.

Shipping

Users are required to comply with US DOT, US DOE, ANL and APS requirements for shipping and receiving materials, samples and equipment. Use FedEx if possible. Please provide GSECARS with your shipment tracking number.
