Medical Sector (X-ray) RPS

Increasingly, delegates have requested that Aurora run a Radiation Protection Supervisor course focusing on the use of X-rays in the medical sector. We have put a course together that includes all the aspects of the established Aurora RPS course, but considered from the perspective of those who work with ionising radiation in a healthcare setting. In addition, delegates will understand how IRR17 requirements mirror and complement other radiation safety legislation requirements, e.g. those associated with The Ionising Radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2017 (IRMER17).

Booking Radiation Safety Courses

The course includes a full course pack with notes, training booklet, worked examples and certificate of completion. Courses at our training centre include lunch and refreshments throughout the day.

Places on sold out courses may become available, please get in touch if you would like to be on a reserve list.

Testimonials

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!
