Radiation protection training



Division of Radiation Emergency Management and Training coordinates, organizes and implements training courses for radiation protection officers and workers dealing with sources of ionizing radiation, state administrative persons working in the field of accident management, for state officers, Radiation Protection Centre (hereafter – RPC) personnel, foreign specialists, students and public regarding radiation protection and preparedness for radiological emergency as well refresh of qualification.





In compliance with the requirements of the Lithuanian legislation, the operator must ensure that radiation protection officers and exposed workers would be trained in radiation protection before starting to work with sources and periodically retrained every five years. The Lithuanian system on radiation protection training meets the needs of the country, and the developed infrastructure complies with the international requirements.


While supervising radiation protection training, RPC reconciled new training programs drafted by institutions implementing radiation protection training, chaired the commissions in assessing knowledge in radiation protection, administered the database of radiation protection certificates, organized a certification of new lecturers seeking to gain the right to train on radiation protection and carried out validation of qualification improvement for existing lecturers.


In order to actively promote knowledge in radiation protection, RPC held workshops and conferences, collaborated with international organizations, encouraged the participation of various specialists in different training and qualification improvement events, in cooperation with public health bureaus (hereinafter – VSB) organized meetings with public.
