The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada’s comprehensive education and training programs have been created to equip you and your employees with the skills needed to make informed decisions regarding the use of alpha, beta and gamma radiation, electromagnetic fields (EMF) and X-rays in the workplace.
The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada’s scientific and educational staff developed our courses over many years, and they are continually revised to ensure that they reflect the latest scientific advances and changes in provincial and federal regulations.
Our multi-day professional certificate courses are offered throughout the year and are designed to meet the regulatory training requirement of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC). They are also approved for professional registration exam eligibility by the Canadian Radiation Protection Association (CRPA).
The Canadian Registration Board of Occupational Hygienists and the American Board of Industrial Hygiene award Maintenance Points and CM Credits respectively for our RSO-1, RSO-2 and XSO Courses.
We also offer a range of Workplace Radiation Awareness courses – typically lasting two to four hours – to give employees, volunteers and patients a basic understanding of issues surrounding the use of job-related radiation sources.
Our Employee Radiation Safety Training courses are designed with Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission requirements in mind, and provide employees with the fundamental knowledge required to work safely in the vicinity of radiation sources (open and closed) or X-rays.
All of our education and training programs are designed and delivered according to the principle of “good science in plain language®.”
