Ionactive is providing Radiation Protection Officer (RPO) training in Dubai (UAE) during 2019. Working in conjunction with RNA Safety International, Ionactive is running the course for all users of ionising radiation combining Security, Industry and Medicine into one course. This mirrors the successful model Ionactive has run in the UK for a number of years (Radiation Protection Supervisor training).
By combining different users onto the same course (x-ray, sealed radioactive sources and unsealed sources), you not only maintain interest and fascination with the subject, but produce an RPO (or RPS in UK) who ‘see the bigger picture’. They learn to understand radiation hazard and risk in their own area, in context with those areas of other delegates they meet during training.
The first course took place during January 2019, the next course will be taking place in Dubai April 29th - May 1st.
