Radiation and X-Ray Safety Training

IMPORTANT NOTICE: (Vancouver Campus Only)
Starting February 2019, no practical training sessions will be offered for the RMS Biosafety, Chemical safety, or Radiation Safety training programs due to the Vancouver Campus teaching laboratory renovations.

We will be moving into a swing space at Lower Mall Research Station and the resumption of practical sessions will be as follows:

  • Radiation safety practical training – anticipated to resume July 2019

Please be sure to register for the waiting list practical session so we are able to gauge demand for practical sessions. If you are planning field work using radioisotopes before July 2019 please contact the Radiation Safety Office or Janet Hankins.

We apologize for any inconvenience.
