Education and training in radiation, transport and waste safety

To build competence in the area of radiation, transport and waste safety, the IAEA offers a range of education and training services and activities to its Member States. The support is offered in line with the IAEA’s mandate, the safety standards and the Strategic Approach to Education and Training in Radiation, Transport and Waste Safety, 2011-2020.

This strategic approach supports Member States as they develop sustainable infrastructure and capability to train key personnel to ensure the safe use of ionizing radiation. It outlines adaptable and flexible measures so that evolving training needs can be met.

A Steering Committee for Education and Training in Radiation, Transport and Waste Safety, comprised of Member State experts, advises the IAEA on the implementation of the strategic approach.

Among the main objectives of the strategic approach is facilitating the development and implementation of a national strategy for education and training for radiation, transport and waste safety, in line with the IAEA General Safety Requirements Governmental, Legal and Regulatory Framework for Safety.

The IAEA, its Member States and IAEA regional training centres work together to implement the strategic approach.

Each has a specific role:

  • The IAEA develops and provides tools to build competence in Member States. This includes training material, syllabi and guidance material on establishing a national strategy;
  • The IAEA regional training centres provide training events in collaboration with the IAEA. They also disseminate and promote IAEA-developed guidance on establishing a national strategy for education and training; and
  • Member States establish national strategies that include the development of education and training programmes in line with the IAEA’s safety standards.
