International RPO training

Online RPO training delivered direct to your company or organisation, anywhere in the world 24/7

Over many years Ionactive has delivered Radiation Protection Officer (RP0) training in the Gulf, principally 3-4 courses 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 online direct to companies and organisations.

The online RPO courses are based on IAEA radiation safety standards and are delivered by the Ionactive online training system created by Mark Ramsay - Qualified Expert (Radiation Protection Adviser) and Chartered Radiation Protection Professional.

Onsite RPO training courses

We will be available to deliver onsite RPO training courses outside the UK when travel conditions allow. You cannot therefore book onsite RPO courses from this page at this time. However, feel free to read on and discover what we have been offering over many years - the online RPO course cannot offer you the sun in Dubai, but the same quality of training is delivered via rich multimedia.

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).

Mark Ramsay of Ionactive training in Dubai, UAE

Ionactive has been involved in delivering RPO training to many delegates across the Gulf and beyond.

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.

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.

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.

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
