I am the physicist in question 10. Once I’ve completed my initial requirements, can I independently perform both screen-film and FFDM surveys?

No. Because your initial training was only in screen-film, under MQSA you are qualified to perform only screen-film surveys independently. In order to perform FFDM surveys, you will need to obtain and document eight hours of training in FFDM. 900.12(a)(3)(iii)(C).
