Develop sufficient radiation protection knowledge and skills to recognise:

  • the need for an operational and management framework for the safety and security of radioactive substances
  • their radiation safety responsibilities when working in a controlled or supervised area with radioactive substances


Personnel that have operational or management responsibilities for fixed radiation gauges, portable moisture/density gauges, or borehole logging equipment in industries such as mining, oil and gas, geotechnical engineering, manufacturing, construction, or agriculture.

NB those working with fixed or portable x-ray gauges are recommended to attend the Safe Use of X-Ray Equipment training course.
