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 Paramount; we can tailor any course to suit your needs.

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).
