Course Overview

This course is aimed at discussing the theoretical and hands-on information required to prepare an individual to perform the role of an effective radiation safety officer. It is also useful as an overall introductory training for anyone who is exposed to radioactive materials or plays a role similar to that of a radiation safety officer.

Participants will study the technical details required to perform as a radiation safety officer and become equipped to lead businesses and industries that occupy radioactive materials and radiation generating equipment. This training program will also enable your organisation to meet the requirements of accreditation bodies that outline the regulatory requirements and suggestions in your region.

What are the roles and responsibilities of a radiation safety officer? Safety officers are responsible for implementing safety programs in their facilities, keeping relevant documentation, and ensuring that regulatory requirements are met ­- this course trains safety officers and other individuals in similar positions to achieve these goals with the required knowledge and practice to do so.

This Zoe training course will empower you with the skills to implement, follow, and improve radiation safety programs effectively.

Course Objectives

Upon completing this Radiation Safety Officer Certification Training Course successfully, participants will be able to:

  • Understand basic radiation physics and its characteristics
  • Discuss concepts such as absorption and scattering, photoelectric effects, Compton scattering, HVL, and particulate radiation
  • Use proper radiographic and radiation monitoring equipment such as X-ray and gamma-ray devices
  • Identify and procure the appropriate radiation protection materials
  • Recognise the legislative structures and regulations for radiation safety

Training Methodology

This collaborative Radiation Safety Officer Certification Training Course will comprise the following training methods:

  • Lectures
  • Seminars & Presentations
  • Group Discussions
  • Assignments

I have been attending Radiation Safety Officer Certification Training Course - 16-20 August 2021 (5 Days) facilitated by Zoe Talent Solutions. Professionally conducted, very simplified and easy-to-understand slides as well as clear and precise explanation by Dr Muhammad Aref was the motivating factor to complete every module. Greatly satisfied and happy with the knowledge gained. Kudos and five stars to Zoe Talent Solutions.
