This radiation safety training course will provide employees with the fundamental knowledge required to work safely in the vicinity of open and sealed radiation sources. This course was developed to meet the training requirements of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC).
There are several convenient ways to take advantage of this unique course.
You can arrange for one of our instructors to come to your workplace and teach the course on site; or you can arrange for a private course to be delivered to your employees at our National Education Center in Toronto. Contact us for more details.
Alternatively, you can register online for one of our publicly scheduled “All About Radiation Safety” courses by clicking on the Register Now button below.
You learn over one day in a friendly, hands-on classroom setting. The day is divided into nine sessions. You will receive a course manual containing the presentation slides, the textbook, and selected CNSC regulations. Your learning is enhanced by a video presentation.
To help you progress, you will be required to complete a hands-on experiment with a final test at the end of the day. When you complete the course requirements and pass the final test, you will receive the Radiation Safety Institute of Canada’s All About Radiation Safety Certificate.
