The PNRI, through the Nuclear Training Center (NTC), conducts training courses for government agencies, private companies, various industries, medical institutions, the academe, and the general public. These include training courses in nuclear science and technology, radiation safety, and non-destructive testing techniques (conducted in cooperation with the Philippine Society for Non-destructive Testing, Inc.).
The PNRI training program on nuclear science and technology aims to familiarize participants with the fundamentals of nuclear science and technology, the basic principle of radiation protection, and the peaceful application of nuclear technologies in agriculture, medicine, industry, research, and the environment.
Nuclear training courses are offered annually to different groups, such as medical practitioners, science educators, researchers, engineers, and technicians.
The courses include lectures, experiments, video showings, demonstrations, and workshop studies. Examinations are given to assess the participants’ understanding of the subject matter being taught. Certificates of satisfactory completion are issued to participants who have demonstrated satisfactory knowledge of the subject matter and the ability to apply it.
Nuclear Training Facilities
The NTC maintains a radioisotope laboratory and NDT laboratory and facilities for use by trainees. Laboratories and facilities of the different research units in PNRI are also made available to the trainees. For specific training courses, PNRI makes arrangements with other private companies, government agencies, universities, and hospitals for PNRI training participants to use their facilities.
Training Staff and Lecturers
The training staff and lecturers include the personnel of the NTC and other technical personnel of PNRI. These lecturers have undergone specialized training abroad in various aspects of nuclear S & T and are experienced in their areas of expertise.
PNRI invites industry, universities, and medical institutions resource persons to discuss particular topics. Experts from international organizations such as the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) are also invited to lecture in their specialization area.
General Course Requirements
The head of the office must endorse participants in any course if they belong to a government agency or a private company. Those participating on their own must submit a written request to join the course.
These include specialized subjects such as the safe transport of radioactive materials and emergency planning and preparedness.
