Covid-19. Please all stay safe. All dates are subject to change in these challenging times.
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, awareness, shielding assessment etc)
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.

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
– Claus Thorberg Hansen, RPS Training, July 2019
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.

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!
– BQ, X-ray security, RPS Training (March 2018)
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.
– Graeme Salt, RPS training, March 2019
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.
– Peter Williams – Project Manager
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.

Relevant to HAZMAT Officer - Mark explained a complex subject in a relevant and easily understandable way.

Very worthwhile experience - Handout is excellent and easy to follow with good coverage of all subjects. Excellent knowledge of subject matter by both instructors.

Thank you for providing a very well presented and interesting course (as always).
– Jamie Humphreys, RPS training delegate, March 2019
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
