Course objectives 

Successful participants will develop knowledge, skills and competencies in radiation protection training for RPEs and RPOs using the ECVET methodology.
In addition, they will be introduced to innovative training practices focused on interactive learning, in particular through immersive learning scenarios developed for the field of radiation protection (industry, research and medical), but which can be applied to other areas of nuclear as well. The training course consists of a one-week face-to-face session. This session includes lectures, workshops, technical visits and role-plays in order to provide participants with relevant and practical learning experiences
