Course Description

This module is aimed at those working in the nuclear industry and in any industrial sector where there is a requirement for radiation detection. Delegates are likely to be early/mid-career and seeking progression. By the end of the course delegates will be able to demonstrate an understanding of the Particle Transport equation and the transport codes and methodologies used to solve it. Understand and be able to evaluate a shielding scenario using simple shielding methods. Demonstrate an understanding of the Monte Carlo and Deterministic methods and how they are applied to radiation shielding calculations. Understand the systematic process that must be followed in order to design shielding to adequately protect those working with ionising radiation.
