Wessex Cardiology Trainees

Radiation Protection

Certification in radiation protection is a mandatory requirement for all of you. This is assessed at your ARCP and it is strongly recommended that you complete this training early on (ideally ST3), so as to achieve maximal benefit throughout your subsequent time in the cardiac catheter labs. Traditionally this has meant attending an Ionising Radiation Medical Exposure Regulations (IRMER) course, something which I am sure the majority of you have already done.

For those of you who do not an IRMER certificate, especially those who are just beginning your training, there is now an online learning option which you can utilise. The course, Radiation Protection For Cardiology, can be completed from the luxury of your own home using the link provided. 

John Paisey has confirmed that local ARCP panels will accept this online certification as sufficient evidence of radiation protection training.
