Introduction to 2 Day Radiation Protection Supervisors (RPS) Course

Our course for Radiation Protection Supervisors, Operators and Practitioners ensures that participants receive the necessary core of knowledge instruction in radiation protection in medical practice, supporting their role to act in any of these capacities.

The course content has been developed to meet requirements outlined in Regulation 18 of IRR17 concerned with local rules and the Radiation Protection Supervisor.

This is a two day course that will equip qualified radiographers with the underpinning theoretical knowledge and understanding necessary to operate as Radiation Protection Supervisors.

 

Course Topics Include:

  • Risks From Ionising Radiation & Principles Of Radiation Protection
  • The Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017
  • Performing Risk Assessments (Diagnostic Radiology, Sealed/Unsealed Sources)
  • Implementing Radiation Safety, Local Rules And The Role Of The RPS (Review Latest L121 Guidance)
  • Personal Monitoring – The Fundamentals And Future Perspectives

 

Please note, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, this is an online course only at present. We hope to return to in-person courses at the IRS offices soon.

 

This course is charged at £400 (ex. VAT) per delegate.
