Course outline

If you work in the radiation protection sector and wish to enhance your current skills to the next level, then our course in Radiation Protection is perfect for you. We offer a great range of strong academic content supported by practical work, so that you can develop all the skills you need to excel in a practical or technical role in this field. 

We work closely with nuclear and non-nuclear sectors to ensure that the training we provide is totally relevant to the real world practice of radiation protection. You'll build a broad-based grounding in the subject, linking the experience you've gained from your job to the extra knowledge we have to offer. Our part-time course allows you to study alongside your current work, letting you earn while you learn to advance your qualifications and open up new opportunities for your career.
