Radioactive concentration (RAC) meter course

For operational crews

Working with radioactive concentration devices requires the supervision of a certified expert. This one-day course is a mandatory training to become a certified user of the radioactive concentration meter. Graduates are qualified to work with a concentration meter.

Learning goals

  • Taking preventive measures for the safe handling of radioactive devices
  • Recognising the risks of radiation
  • Understanding safety procedures when working with radioactive sources

Training topics

The following subjects will be covered during the programme: 

  • measuring slurry concentration
  • what is radioactivity? 
  • the principle of radioactivity used during measurement 
  • the dangers of radioactivity 
  • concentration meter construction
  • operating and maintenance instructions (concentration meter) 
  • safety 
  • legislation.

Training methods

The classroom-oriented course and will be given in Dutch, and is based on Dutch legislation. However, it can be also be taught in English on request. The topic of radioactive concentration meters will be taught theoretically, but aims to prepare attendees for the practical use of the device.
Graduates of the programme are subsequently certified to work with a concentration meter (open/close radiation valve).
