National strategies for education and training in radiation, transport and waste safety

A national education and training strategy aims to build and maintain a level of competence that enables the safe use of ionizing radiation in line with IAEA safety standards. Key components of a national strategy are optimized human and physical resources, a sustainable infrastructure and sufficient capabilities for education and training.

Building competence in a sustainable and effective manner

Four interlinked phases are part of the process to establish a national strategy for education and training in radiation, transport and waste safety:

  1. Assessing education and training needs, taking into account current and reasonably foreseeable facilities and activities within the country and the national legal and regulatory framework for education and training.
  2. Designing a national education and training programme that defines what educational and training events are needed.
  3. Developing and implementing the education and training programme. This might require the development or expansion of educational and training mechanisms and infrastructure. It could also involve training people abroad.
  4. Monitoring and evaluating the education and training programme on a regular basis to adapt to changing needs.
