Training Courses

We currently run regular training courses online via teams, and are hoping to see a return to the classroom in Q2 2022.  We also offer bespoke courses specifically aimed at our clients' needs which can be held online virtually, at our premises, or on the clients' site.

In order to comply with the Ionising Radiations Regulations 2017 (IRR17), it is essential that employers ensure 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.

ARPS provide training at various levels to suit each individual’s degree of involvement with radioactive substances and their responsibility within the organisation.
