The RPO DRS-D Course

This hands-on course trains staff who supervise operations with dispersible radioactive substances (open sources) at D-level radionuclide laboratories, with a maximum radioactivity of 0.2 Reinh.

Are you not in a supervisory role, but do you work with radioactive substances in dispersible form? Then this course is also very suitable for you! This course then counts as the mandatory instruction focused on the radiation risks of the working environment.
