Course description
This course can be followed in English and in Dutch. Go to  the website for detailed information.

The radiation safety course 5B level is open to MSc students who need it for their research project. You must have permission from your supervisor and your programme coordinator.
Please note: Because this course is expensive, you need to fill the rest of your elective component with modules which are free of extra costs. The costs of the radiation safety course at level 4B will not be reimbursed.

The course Health Physics expert level 5B is meant for radiation experts in situations where radioactive sources with a low risk of exposure are used. The course offers a useful introduction in working with ionizing radiation for all kinds of radiation workers, such as laboratory personnel, technical staff, medical personnel and workers in industry. Because of the diversity in work environment of the participants, the course will not focus on one specific radioisotope.
A Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is used for this course. Participants will have to study before the start of the training. This can be done independently and all students are fee to choose their own study moments.
The course level 5B is open to MSc students who will have to work with radioactive material during their research project. You must have permission from your supervisor and your program coordinator.
The exam consists of 50 multiple choice questions. After passing this exam, you will receive the certificate Health Physics expert level 5B and are allowed to work independently with radioisotopes.

The courses will be taught at the Ornstein Laboratory, Princetonplein 1, De Uithof, Utrecht.
