Australia’s experts in nuclear education and radiation training


The nuclear industry has developed over more than 70 years and is the most highly regulated of industries globally. In response to both the diverse range of hazards, which have been the most studied of occupational hazards, and in response to significant industrial accidents, a set of safe operating models, codes and standards have been developed. ANSTO represents the lion’s share of Australia’s small but highly complex, world-class nuclear capabilities. The OPAL reactor, one of the world’s best multi-purpose reactors and Australia’s only operating reactor, is located alongside our nation’s broader nuclear research and technology capabilities on ANSTO’s main campus south of Sydney CBD.

A significant part of ANSTO’s role is to provide expertise and advice across Government, industry and to the Australian public on nuclear science and technology. ANSTO are leaders  in workforce training across the Australian nuclear industry and our Radiation Safety Training business has over 30 years of experience providing expert advice and delivery of accredited training to Australian industry each year.
