Introduction to Radiation Protection Supervisor Training in Dental Radiography

Our course for Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS) training in Dental Radiography ensures that participants receive the necessary core of knowledge instruction to be appointed as RPS for their practice.

The course content has been developed to meet requirements outlined in Regulation 18(5)(a) 17 of The Ionising Radiation Regulations 2017 (IRR17) and covers the RPS syllabus requirements as outlined by HSE information sheet ‘Ionising Radiation Protection Series No. 6’.

This is a single day course that will equip dental professionals with the underpinning theoretical knowledge and understanding necessary to act as a RPS under the remit of IRR.

This course is appropriate for those requiring to be appointed as RPSs for the first time, and for those seeking RPS refresher training. There will be various Q&A sessions throughout the course and a multiple-choice questionnaire (MCQ) at the end.

 

Course Topics Include:

  • Nature of ionising radiation, biological effects, and dose units
  • Risk from ionising radiation and principles of radiation protection
  • The Ionising Radiation Regulations 2017 (IRR17)
  • Radiation risk assessments
  • Implementing radiation safety – local rules and the role of the RPS
  • Dose monitoring – the fundamentals
  • Dental X-ray equipment
  • Dental guidance notes on the safe use of X-ray equipment, 2nd edition

 

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

 

This course is charged at £206 (ex. VAT) per delegate.
