Radiation Protection Training Course [RP]
All persons supposed to work in CERN radiation areas and not yet in possession of a CERN personal dosimeter have to follow a CERN-specific radiation protection training course. This training course will provide basic knowledge regarding radiation risks at CERN and the means to protect oneself against these risks. The training course is adapted to CERN-specific radiation risks and is mandatory to obtain a CERN personal dosimeter.
How to get a dosimeter? Please visit the dosimetry service website.
Supervised Radiation Areas:
Every person who has to work in a CERN Supervised Radiation Area ONLY and is not yet in possession of a CERN personal dosimeter has to follow a training course by
E-learning (https://sir.cern.ch – “Radiation Protection Training for CERN Supervised Radiation Areas”).
Controlled Radiation Areas:
Every person who has to work in a CERN Controlled Radiation Area and is not yet in possession of a CERN personal dosimeter has to follow a one-day class room training course. This training course also allows work in Supervised Radiation Areas.
- Employed and associated members of CERN’s personnel as well as persons employed in the framework of a temporary labour contract with CERN should enrol via the links below to the classroom trainings. The training course is given at CERN. No training fees will be charged.
"Radiation Protection - Controlled Area - CERN Employees and Associates" - Course code STIRP02IE
"Radioprotection - Zone contrôlée - Employés et associés CERN" - Course code STIRP02IF
- Contractors’ personnel should enrol via CTA (http://cta.cern.ch/) for a training course given by an external training provider accredited by CERN. The training course takes place in the Technoparc in St Genis. A training fee will be charged to the contractor.
The training course is given in English or French. Specific training sessions can be organised on request for persons speaking neither English nor French. For these specific sessions, the trainees have to be accompanied by a translator (supplied by the institute or CERN group for associated members of CERN’s personnel or by the contractor for contractors’ personnel).
The enrolment for the classroom training may take some time which has to be taken into account when planning the works.
To identify the radiological classification of the area where the work will be performed (Supervised Radiation Area or Controlled Radiation Area), please refer to the RP database RAISIN (https://cern.ch/raisin - using CERN login).
Refresher courses are under preparation for those already in possession of a CERN personal dosimeter for more than three years. Further information regarding these courses will be communicated in due time.
