You learn over one day in a friendly, hands-on classroom setting. The day is divided into ten sessions. Your learning is enhanced by a hands-on practical experiment and a video presentation. Appropriate refreshment breaks are included.
You will receive a 275-page binder containing the course presentation slides, the course textbook, and Ontario X-Ray safety regulations from the Ministry of Labour and the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care.
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 X-Ray Safety Certificate.
