Education & Training

There are two types of training program:initial education and training, and continuing education and training sessions.

Inital Education and Training to Register as Radiation Workers

Initial education and training sessions are held every April, August, October, and January (four times a year).

The law requires inexperienced people to complete this education and training sessions in order to register as a radiation worker.

We accept applications one month before the training session begins.
Please apply via the TOP PAGE.

Category  Research/Business Content 
 Category A  Handling unsealed radioisotopes (handling radioisotopes as a chemical substance in an unsealed condition)
 Category B Using KEK, Spring8, JAERI, NIRS, and IPCR

Handling radiation generators, synchrotron radiation facilities, and sealed radioisotopes.

Using X-ray,NMR,and other appratuses in controlled areas.
 Category C Using X-rays equipment under 1MV outside of controlled areas.

Handling sealed sources not controlled by The Law Concerning Prevention of Radiation Hazards.

gApparatus that generate X-rays or radiationh refer to various X-ray diffractometers.
If you are unsure of this definition,
please contact the Radiation Research and Management Center

If you are not sure which category to apply for, or have previously engaged in radiation or X-ray handing work at other facilities, please contact Radiation Research and Management Center.

The law requires these lectures to take a certain amount of time to cover the specific content needed for your education and training. Late arrival and early dismissal is not permitted. You must attend the lecture prior to attending the hands-on course.

Continuing Education and Training to Register as Radiation Workers

Continuing education and training sessions are held every May for those wishing to register as radiation workers.

This education and training program is for those who are already registered as radiation workers (RI or radiation generator operators), and who wish to continue to carry out similar tasks this year. The law requires radiation workers to retrain each year by participating in this program.

Not mandatory in Category C.

Those who have not taken part in education and training sessions for more than one year, or who have worked with radiation in an external facility must contact us in advance.

X-Ray Apparatus in which the Voltage of the X-Ray Tube Is Less than 1 MV outside the Controlled Areas

For those intending to work with an X-ray apparatus with a voltage of less than 1MV (Category C), education and training sessions are held every April and October (twice a year).

In category C, you only need to take the lecture once.
There is no need to enroll in education and training in the following year.

Category C users, those who only handle X-ray apparatus,
do not need to undergo special medical screening for ionizing radiation.
