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).
Interactive Online Radiation Safety Training
We have developed our radiation safety courses so that we can now deliver them live, remotely and online.
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).
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.

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.
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!
