Radiation Protection Training

Radiation Protection Training

Since the beginning of 2018, BHI Energy has been actively training and qualifying radiation protection technicians for the U.S. supplemental workforce.  BHI is certified by the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) to administer written knowledge exams and task performance evaluations using EPRI Standardized Task Evaluations (STE).  The STE process ensures our technicians are trained and qualified using a systematic approach to training.

As the nation’s largest supplier of supplemental radiation protection technicians, BHI is always looking for smart, hard-working individuals that desire a career in radiation protection.  We offer initial training that provides the basic skills to perform junior level radiation protection tasks.  We also offer senior level training to those technicians ready to advance to a senior radiation protection technician position.  This web page provides the information needed to prepare for the training.

  • The Nuclear Industry Standard Processes are procedures that govern the work commonly performed by radiation protection technicians.  Technicians are trained and qualified to implement these procedures.
  • Training material is provided to learn the basic fundamental knowledge in radiation protection and to learn the knowledge required to implement specific NISP procedures.
  • A training schedule is maintained on this website to announce where and when BHI will provide training.  BHI does not charge students for attending the training.
  • A link for course registration enables you to notify BHI when there is a course that you want to attend.  The information will enable you to talk with our instructors and to get the information you need to prepare.  Please do not register unless you are willing to make the commitment to prepare in advance.  The program is fast-paced and the probability of success is dependent on your preparation.
