Service Description

The "RSO in Mexico" course is something we have wanted to offer for years. The course is tentatively scheduled to determine if there is interest in this RSO course delivery format. This will cover all the content from the 3-day RSO course but will be delivered live, face-to-face, over 5 days in an all inclusive resort in Mexico. This will ensure the learner has enough time to devote to the material, and enjoy the destination. Please email us for more information, suggestions, and to let us know you are interested. If we get enough interest, we will finalize details and update this webpage. The Practical RSO Training Course is an in-depth, 5-day course designed for individuals with responsibilities as a RSO working in a medical (Nuclear Medicine/PET), University or laboratory environment. This unique course provides participants with practical applications to meet CNSC and provincial regulatory requirements while dealing with radioactive materials or medical patients. The course has been approved by the Canadian Radiation Protection Association and follows the core competencies (excluding Class 7 TDG requirements) outlined for the Registered Radiation Safety Professional national examination to achieve the CRPA(R) designation. The course is also beneficial for those individuals wishing to write the examination and achieve the CRPA(R) designation. The RSO Training Course goes beyond textbooks. Taught by an experienced RSO, the course is designed to meet the current administrative and technical challenges in implementing a radiation safety program to meet CNSC requirements. Course tools allow participants to develop and maintain excellence in radiation safety program at their own facilities. Class discussions and exercises supplement training material. Significant class time is devoted to practical scenarios. A certificate will be issued to participants who successfully complete the course. Course Instructor Joe Cortese, BSc (Physics), CRPA(R) is an experienced RSO, formerly from the BC Cancer Agency and is the current BCIT RSO. Joe is a highly sought after educator in radiation safety. His training courses consistently receive high ratings and excellent reviews. Joe has been designated an Industry Services trainer for his RSO and TDG Courses.
