Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS) training courses are run monthly at our UK training venue in Buckinghamshire
Contingency based radiation safety training for the emergency services and high hazard facilities
International Radiation Protection Officer (RPO) training, delivered direct to your company (
Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, UAE etc)
Bespoke onsite radiation protection training (RPS level, radiation safety awareness, shielding assessment etc)
All of the above training categories will also be available online from September 2020
Who attends Ionactive training?
Our training delegates come from a wide variety of ionising radiation users. Our standard UK courses are designed to take users from industry, medicine, security, quality assurance etc and place them in the same training environment. Learning from each other is a key deliverable and helps the delegate understand their workplace radiation risks in context with other users. We now deliver our international RPO training courses direct at the company premises (particularly in the Gulf area). We will design the RPO course around your specific uses of ionising radiation.

Well done on the course, I thought it worked very well and it's good to have something that you can pick up when you have time.
Thanks Mark. Really good course given the dry subject :)
Thank You for a well-executed course Monday and Tuesday. It was a pleasure to see how assertive you were by paying attention to ALL delegates at the same time and making the course content relevant for one and all. I’ve recommended it highly to our base managers as I see others within our organization that could benefit from it
I was delighted that we achieved a satisfactory demonstration of our reactor emergency arrangements. The scenario was realistic, but testing. The quality of the exercise documentation produced by Ionactive was as usual first class.
Came knowing very little about the subject, have left with all of the relevant knowledge I need
Outstanding Instructor Knowledge, Hit all the important parts, very satisfied!
Main objective was to understand radioactive materials better and you have certainly fulfilled this for me. Excellent content and well delivered. Thank you.
Radon Gas - a surprise! I work only with security x-ray systems but found the radioactive bits of the course interesting too. I will be talking to my colleagues about Radon Gas when next discussing our workplace risks!
Thanks for delivering a very informative course this week, it will certainly help me to get back into the RPS role after a hiatus of several years and it’s increased my understanding of the subject matter as well.
Many thanks for an interesting two-day radiation course. Whilst physics and maths is not my thing, I found the material easy to digest and surprisingly enjoyable!
Sincere thanks, Mark, for the energy, enthusiasm, and, excellent, training, given to my site teams, for two very different decommissioning projects. The assistance and guidance, provided, through RA requirements, and your pragmatic RPA technical support, for both challenging projects – fume filter plant decommissioning and overall site decontamination, was central to the complete success achieved, against reasonable expectations.
Thanks Mark. Just wanted to say I really enjoyed the course, it was really well presented throughout and kept me engaged!
Many thanks for the follow up both prior, and now correspondences, on what was an excellent well delivered and well managed course by yourselves / RNA , and of course the tutor QE , Mark Ramsey. It certainly does promote further study and learning, with the engagement that everyone showed , very professionally.
First, let me to express my gratitude to the one of the most interesting course that I have attended. It was an informatively value course. Congratulation for you also for this great arrangement and the success of your courses.
Good morning! Thank you very much for bringing such a wonderful learning opportunity to us here in the UAE! Thank you too for the superb organization of the event! Good luck to future trainings and events with RNA Safety!
CBRNC has worked with Mark Ramsay of Ionactive Consulting to create a bespoke RPS course which meets the required standard, but is weighted towards Police needs
Very professional and enthusiastic delivery of course material without being dictatorial. The course planning was modular and flexible which helped maintain interest. Very good candidate engagement – firmly establishes the key principles
Well done ! Trainer’s demonstrated excellent knowledge – excellent reference folder. Very informative presentations on what is a difficult and complex subject for us.
Excellent and enjoyable course - Originally quite heavy/daunting but made more sense as time went on and became more enjoyable and understandable
Highly relevant for CBRN Coordinators - Superb course. Highly relevant for CBRN Coordinators, enabling instructors to deliver a high quality R and N package to CBRN Responders
Relevant to HAZMAT Officer - Mark explained a complex subject in a relevant and easily understandable way. Both delegate notes and PowerPoint presentations are very good, clear and added to overall training delivery. I both enjoyed the course and found the content very relevant to my role as a Hazmat officer. " MP, H&W Fire Service
Very worthwhile experience - Handout is excellent and easy to follow with good coverage of all subjects. Excellent knowledge of subject matter by both instructors. Great to look at events worldwide to understand the threat and get a clearer picture of what types of incident could occur. A very worthwhile experience!
Thank you for providing a very well presented and interesting course (as always).
Thank you for an enjoyable two days. As Radiopharmacy is all new to me, I found your course really helpful and learnt a lot that will help me with my training in the cleanrooms and in Production. I have a better understanding of what I am working with and the risks that can happen in the workplace and how training in spills etc is important. I look forward to going through my Training Manual and taking the Knowledge Test
Great course. Definitely took me 5 days not 2 though!! Mark always helpful and prompt when support required. Definitely recommend this course.
I found material very well presented and helpful, legislation is bit dry but it is what it is. I enjoyed this course. It's definitely the best ever online course I have done.
