(for ionizing radiation applications and nuclear energy)

Course Outline and Content:

The course is aimed to provide advanced knowledge of radon origin and its spread in environment, in terms of their radiological impact, and to develop the skills for performing the measurements of radon and progeny concentrations in different places. The content of the course will offer the theoretical and practical understanding of the regulatory requirements in the existing exposure situations involving radon exposure.

The programme is addressed to:

Radiation Protection Officers having responsibilities in NPP operation or radioactive waste management, in uranium mining, uranium processing, fuel fabrication; Professionals of Public Health Service (physicists, chemists); Professionals of Environment Monitoring and to those who are interested in continuous professional development in order to cover present needs in different sectors of nuclear energy and ionizing radiation applications.

The course is structured as follows:

Unit 1 – Radiological characterisation of radon (1 ECTS)

Unit 2 – Regulatory control on exposure to indoor radon in dwellings and workplaces (1 ECTS)
