Radiation Safety Training

Aurora offers a range of training courses that are pragmatic, practical and cost-effective to suit our Client’s needs. Our trainers are experienced as well as being recognised experts in the field of radiation protection.

Aurora have been working hard behind the scenes to develop our services in response to the pandemic, including the delivery of online training.

Radiation Safety Training

Our scheduled courses offer delegates two options: delegates can either come to us, or attend one of our on-line training sessions. Delegates can choose the option that suits them best. We also provide tailored radiation protection training courses, where our presenters come to you, whether that be in the UK or Worldwide. This is a key strength of Aurora; we can tailor any course to suit your needs. Our training covers work with ionising radiation (radioactive substances and X-rays) as well as non-ionising radiation (lasers, broadband optical sources and electromagnetic fields).

Tailored Training

Interactive Online Radiation Safety Training

We have developed our radiation safety courses so that we can now deliver them live, remotely and online.

Online radiation safety training now offered online.

Scheduled Courses

We offer a number of scheduled courses at our premises in Oxfordshire and Newcastle-upon-Tyne, as well as offering these courses online. These established courses allow delegates to interact with experts in the field of radiation protection, as well as other delegates that are working with ionising or non-ionising radiation. All courses (whether at our premises or online) are interactive and include exercises and discussion. Our training team comprises qualified Radiation Protection Advisers (RPAs), Radioactive Waste Advisers (RWAs), Laser Protection Advisers (LPAs), Electromagnetic Magnetic Fields (EMF) Safety Specialists, Medical Physics Experts (MPEs) and Dangerous Goods Safety Advisers (DGSAs).

Radiation Protection Supervisor Training Course

We provide a one day Radiation Protection Supervisor (RPS) course. This is suitable for all those who will be appointed as an RPS within their organisation or require refresher training.

Non-Ionising Radiation Safety Training

Since Non-Ionising Radiation (NIR) sources can vary enormously in their characteristics, effects on health and required protection measures, Aurora has developed a number of state-of-the-industry training courses.

Tailored Courses

We offer courses tailored specifically to fit the requirements of your organisation. These courses can be delivered on site and are highly recommended for groups of more than four people. All our courses can be tailored to find the right balance between taught material and practical elements. What matters to us is providing the right course for you. Examples of tailored courses we have provided are shown below.

We have recently utilised Aurora in providing radiation protection training courses to our clients. Our clients have often commented on how impressed they have been with the Aurora team, both technically and personally, during the courses, such that Aurora has provided the same high level of service we require from our own staff when dealing with clients.
David Quelch

General Sales Manager and Principle RPS, Able Instruments & Controls

The ionising and Non-Ionising Radiation Training by Aurora was an excellent course and I would recommend attending it. The course was well paced and was structured to include participants of all levels. There were plenty of opportunities to network, which is a bonus when you are new to this area.

Those presenting were able to clearly explain legislative requirements and I acquired a lot of new knowledge, particularly about lasers and electromagnetic fields.

Lorraine Dixon CMIOSH

Health and Safety Adviser, Gateshead Council

Fantastic course, sufficiently detailed and well-paced. Split between Joel and Jon, it was nice to split the voices up throughout, both clearly very knowledgeable guys. Breaks really helped, especially in an interactive setting as I was working from home. Very well run for an online course and definitely not ‘death by PowerPoint,’ which I was apprehensive of.
Brandon Green

Technical Manager, Ornua

The material was presented by Aurora personnel and they demonstrated a good depth of knowledge not only in their own material, but particularly in responding to questions and topics raised by the delegates.

It was refreshing to come at this topic from the perspective of health and safety management, this gave the opportunity to explore ideas that incorporated the user perspective whilst also integrating readily into health and safety management systems. This course is suitable for, and relevant to, health and safety managers with and without radiation expertise!
