As this website (well it's a Wiki really) and training programme develop there will be interactive training materials available. All of the outputs from the EC EURATOM PROTECT project have been moved to this website as have those from the earlier EURATOM projects ERICA, FASSET and EPIC.

titleIntroduction

It is now generally accepted that there is a need to explicitly demonstrate that the environment is protected from authorised discharges of radioactive substances. In response a number of assessment tools (models) have been developed. As the need for environmental assessment increases there is a requirement to ensure that regulators, industry and their representatives are: conversant with assessment objectives; know how to use available tool; can interpret the results; understand the implications of how the tools are used.The Natural Environment Research Council has provide funding, under the Knowledge Exchange programme, to develop training packages (including on-line training materials) on radiological environmental assessment aimed specifically aimed at regulators and industry and those who may conduct assessment on their behalf. The project is lead by the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology with collaborators from the England & Wales Environment Agency, Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) and the Belgian Nuclear Research Centre (SCK.CEN).

The training programme will be focussed towards the use of the ERICA Tool however, we will also consider other approaches. We have will run four two day training courses between April 2010 and courses although if there is sufficient demand we may be able to arrange more. To date three courses have been held in April and November 2010 and October 2011. The next course is to be held in June 2012; see Training courses - schedule & details for further information.

h4. Courses held in Melbourne and Perth (Australia)

We recently ran two, 2.5 day courses in Australia (March/April 2012). These were attended by 17/18 representatives from organisations such as national and state regulators, the uranium mining industry and consultants. The course were an adaptation of those we have run in the UK, with especially the practical exercises, being focussed to more local interests
with associated practical exercises
