Our courses may be delivered slightly differently however this will not impact your overall learning experience. If you have any questions please reach out to our team at radiationservices@ansto.gov.au

Course Objective

Develop sufficient radiation protection knowledge and skills to recognise:

  • the need for an operational and management framework for the safety and security of radioactive substances
  • their radiation safety responsibilities when working in a controlled or supervised area with radioactive substances

Audience

Personnel that have operational or management responsibilities for fixed radiation gauges, portable moisture/density gauges, or borehole logging equipment in industries such as mining, oil and gas, geotechnical engineering, manufacturing, construction, or agriculture.
