Information on training
The University of Adelaide, in collaboration with the Environment Protection Authority South Australia, is currently developing a new postgraduate program in radiation management.
To assist with the development of the program, they are conducting a market survey to gauge the level of interest from radiation agencies and individual licensees across Australia.
The proposed Graduate Certificate in Radiation Management would aim to deliver tertiary-qualified graduates with the competence to supervise and manage radiation safety in mining, industrial radiography, security or scientific industries. Graduates would be trained to ensure that radiation work is carried out safely and in accordance with national and international requirements.
This program would create the next generation of tertiary-qualified Radiation Safety Officers in Australia and overseas.
The surveys will close on 30 June 2013.
Survey for individuals
This survey consists of 13 questions and should take around 5 minutes to complete. If you wish to save your responses and return to the survey at a later stage, you will need to use the same computer and the same browser to pick up and finish (cookies must be enabled on your computer).

As many of you are aware Japan has recently suffered a major tsunami caused by one of the largest earthquakes in recorded history. There has been (a still be determined) enormous loss of life just from this and the situation is still developing.
For those interested in the material that will enter the VET training package system, all of the current drafts of the units of competencies appear below. Comment closed some weeks ago, but there is still an opportunity to make comments.

Radiation Protection and Safety
Feedback of 7 draft units of competency in radiation protection have been developed by a working group of the Radiation Health Committee, led by Government Skills Australia. The drafts can be downloaded here, but comments on them must be provided back to GSA via their website (you will need to create an account in order to provide official comments).
YouTube contains many Radiation Protection videos that may be of interest to ARPS members. I have inserted few examples that may interest members and give you an idea what sort of content is available from YouTube. Be aware, some work places frown on the use of YouTube and block access. However, there is a lot of educational material available on YouTube to the selective viewer.
Broadband is required to watch these videos...
Government Skills Australia had publicised a number of consultation workshops on the draft unit of competency “Safely perform radiation protection tasks at a emergency incident site”.
