Why? Training and capacity building are the keys to sustainable economic development: the greatest asset of any organisation is its people.
How? On site/ hands-on, online, DVD, or classroom – or any combination that suits your needs and local capacity building objectives.
When? A solution is urgent given the rapid development of demand for such capabilities in emerging and developing economies, some with little or no indigenous source of knowledge or experience in the domain as they are working in the radiation safety arena for the first time.
Short Courses: In situ short courses are available of varying durations. Typically courses for senior and management staff last 1-2days, for operational and technical staff 2-5 days.
Fundamental capacity-building course are also available lasting 4-6 weeks.
Location: Courses are offered in a variety of locations around the world, including, by arrangement on your own site.
Customisation and Bespoke Training: MiLoRAD is modular in nature and can easily be adapted to your specific needs, or form part of a bespoke training programme.
Twelve NORM industries are covered
Assessing the Need for Radiation Protection Measures in Work Involving Minerals and Raw Materials, Safety Reports Series No. 49, IAEA, Vienna, (2006)
Radiation safety is now an essential part of patient and professional care in medicine, whether for diagnostic or treatment purposes.
Courses have been developed for capacity building in this rapidly expanding area of health care. They include one-day courses for senior managers and medical directors and five day courses for clinical and technical staff.
MiLoRAD offers a competency-based approach to radiation safety training for all industries working with Radiation Safety Requirements. These include Medicine, Nuclear Energy, NORM industries and the Security sectors.
A competency may be defined in terms of what a person is required to do (operational task), under what conditions it is to be done (operating conditions), what the task is intended to achieve (outputs and outcomes) and how well it is to be done (performance standards). Competencies commonly map to skills, which in turn may be simple or complex in nature.
In MiLo RAD, skills are broken out into five distinct categories:
MiLoRAD uses a five-tier, criterion-referenced competency and best practice model, developed especially for the program:
With more than 60 countries planning to join the nuclear energy family for the first time, training and capacity building is a key objective, starting with safety for the workforce and for stakeholders.
Uranium mining and production, and the extraction of uranium from phosphoric acid are two areas of special interest that bridge NORM industries to nuclear power.
Training, Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and wider training needs are addressed in a combination of in situ (in-post) learning, classroom and web-based/ DVD course elements.
In association with suitable national or regional centres of excellence, MiLoRAD offers options for certification or accreditation of both individuals and operating units who have successfully completed the courses. CEU credits are also available.
