Change to duration of the radiation safety training course and start of the e-learning system

 As specified in the Act on Prevention of Radiation Hazards due to Radioisotopes, etc., which was revised in April 2018, users of radiation generators and the like are required to implement education and training depending on the manner these items are used. Given that, from FY 2019, we will change the content and duration of the radiation safety training course that is held prior to registration as a radiation worker as follows. We will be starting an e-learning system for radiation safety training in March 2019 for those who are going to register as a radiation worker.

There will be changes to the duration of the radiation safety training course that you need to take for your initial registration as a radiation worker each fiscal year as follows.
