International RPO training

For many years Ionactive has delivered several Radiation Protection Officer (RP0) training courses in the Gulf, principally each year in Dubai with a UAE based training partner. As market conditions and expectations change, we are updating our services to meet client needs. We are now offering training services direct to companies who have a number of delegates who can be trained ‘in house’. The courses are based on IAEA radiation safety standards but will be personalised to country specific legislation in the Gulf region, North Africa and further afield. The courses are delivered by Mark Ramsay, a UK based Qualified Expert (Radiation Protection Adviser) and Chartered Radiation Protection Professional, at your company training facility.

Who

We will deliver a 3-5 day course designed for your specific needs covering your use of ionising radiation. X-ray and radioactive materials for use in medical, industrial, quality assurance and security etc can be included. We can also provide a radiation awareness level course over one day.

Cost

Please use the contact form below, or contact mark.ramsay@ionactive.co.uk directly for a quote. There is no minimum number of delegates we will train, however we are likely to offer the best fixed price proposal (for up to 8 delegates initially), if you maximise your delegate numbers. Short on delegates - how about partnering with another local company and hosting together?

Modern IT facilities allows us to deliver a training presentation direct in your training room. Onsite training also allows for the possibility of a ‘walk and talk’ training session around your work area (this is an advantage compared to attending an offsite training venue). By attending your company location we can also include a practical session if required (for example radiation monitoring around your ionising radiation sources).

Ionactive has been involved in delivering RPO training to many delegates across the Gulf and beyond. Examples include delegates from Dubai Customs, Dubai Airport, Emirates Air, Etihad Air, ADNOC, ENOC, SEHA Group, EMAAR Group, Jumeirah Group of Hotels, Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power, Bahrain Customs, Bahrain Tatweer Petroleum, Mattex Group (UAE), Smiths Detection, Rapiscan Systems and many more. Our RPO courses will be designed around your use of ionising radiation so maximising the training advantage for all delegates.

Why use Ionactive? We are Qualified Experts (Radiation Protection Adviser) to many of the companies that supply the radiation sources you may be using in your workplace. Examples include appointed Adviser to GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Elekta Oncology, Rapiscan Systems, Smiths Detection and many others. Therefore during the RPO training we can offer specific advice on radiation safety as well as assistance in applying for licenses from your regulator (e.g FANR in UAE, Ministry of Environment in Qater, Environment Authority in Bahrain, etc), and writing your radiation safety programmes and local rules.
