Advanced Radiation Safety (ARS)

Special note

Candidates attempting a PCN examination must meet the PCN/GEN requirements. If attempting an ASNT/EN4179/NAS410 examination the requirements of your company’s written practice must be met. This course is not suitable for BGAS-CSWIP examination preparation.

The course is structured to meet national requirements and recommendations. If candidates have forgotten a significant amount of their basic radiation safety knowledge, it is strongly recommended that they attend the basic course before attending the supervisor course.

The course is ideal for those candidates wishing to be certificated in radiation protection to supervisor level under the PCN scheme requirements.
