Education and Training Services

The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada’s comprehensive education and training programs have been created to equip you and your employees with the skills needed to make informed decisions regarding the use of alpha, beta and gamma radiation, electromagnetic fields (EMF) and X-rays in the workplace.

The Radiation Safety Institute of Canada’s scientific and educational staff developed our courses over many years, and they are continually revised to ensure that they reflect the latest scientific advances and changes in provincial and federal regulations.

Certificate Courses

Our multi-day professional certificate courses are offered throughout the year and are designed to meet the regulatory training requirement of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC). They are also approved for professional registration exam eligibility by the Canadian Radiation Protection Association (CRPA).

The Canadian Registration Board of Occupational Hygienists and the American Board of Industrial Hygiene award Maintenance Points and CM Credits respectively for our RSO-1, RSO-2 and XSO Courses.

For 2024, all of our scheduled courses will be offered real-time online, with our RSO course having a number of dates being offered in person. Our commissioned courses are available real-time online or on-site.




Awareness Education

At this time our awareness training are offered as commissioned courses which can be held online or on site. Please email us for more details.

We also offer a range of Workplace Radiation Awareness courses – typically lasting two to four hours – to give employees, volunteers and patients a basic understanding of issues surrounding the use of job-related radiation sources.
