Training Courses

ARPS regularly run training courses at our premises in Aberdeen.  We also offer bespoke courses specifically aimed at our client’s needs, these can be held at our premises or on the Clients site.

It is essential that the radiation employer in compliance with the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999, ensures that everyone involved in the management of radiation, including work where Naturally Occurring Radioactive Material (NORM) is present, has the necessary competence and awareness of the hazards and risks involved.
