In New York City, whenever a laboratory is in operation, a C-14 Laboratory Certificate of Fitness holder must be present. This is a Fire Department of New York (FDNY) requirement. Laboratories for each principal investigator must have a sufficient number of staff with C-14 Laboratory Certificates of Fitness to provide coverage for all times when the laboratory is in operation.
TRAINING FREQUENCY: C-14 Laboratory Certificate of Fitness training is a one-time training requirement, as long as renewals are properly maintained. C-14s that have expired may require the training to be repeated. C-14 Laboratory Certificates of Fitness may be completed as follows:
- EHS-provided C-14 training program (eligibility restrictions apply)
- FDNY-provided C-14 program (eligibility restrictions apply)
