Radiation Protection Training Program

BHI conducts training classes to bring new people into the industry to begin their career as a Radiation Protection (RP) Technician. These classes are offered at no cost, and teach the fundamental science and how to assess radiological conditions to institute protective measures for radiation workers. A radiological simulator is used to enable trainees to learn proper survey techniques in an environment that does not pose radiation exposure.

Students who successfully complete the class are eligible for hire as a Junior RP Technician. Employment opportunities with BHI are typically an option for people who successfully completed this training.  Learn more by clicking here.
