Valid radiation training (theory + practice) is mandatory for working in the controlled area. In addition, a valid medical certificate of suitability for radiation worker category A and information on previous radiation exposures (radiation passport) are required for foreigners to work in the controlled area.
The validity of the practical training is mandatory for all those working in the control area, because during the investigation of contamination cases in previous years, it was found that a large number of contaminations due to improper stripping did not have practical training completed.
Special radiation protection training (high radiation risk training) is given for challenging and extensive jobs by professional group. The training materials are prepared job-specific and the trainings focus on the radiation protection challenges and risks of the job in question.
The high radiation risk training is not an additional training in addition to previous years' trainings.
It refers to occupational group-specific radiation protection training, which is given in connection with the contractor training to those work groups that work in high radiation risk jobs.
