Training testimonials

I was delighted that we achieved a satisfactory demonstration of our reactor emergency arrangements. The scenario was realistic, but testing. The quality of the exercise documentation produced by Ionactive was as usual first class.

Came knowing very little about the subject, have left with all of the relevant knowledge I need

Outstanding Instructor Knowledge, Hit all the important parts, very satisfied!

Radon Gas - a surprise! I work only with security x-ray systems but found the radioactive bits of the course interesting too. I will be talking to my colleagues about Radon Gas when next discussing our workplace risks!

– BQ, X-ray security, RPS Training (March 2018)

Thanks for delivering a very informative course this week, it will certainly help me to get back into the RPS role after a hiatus of several years and it’s increased my understanding of the subject matter as well.

– Graeme Salt, RPS training, March 2019

Many thanks for an interesting two-day radiation course. Whilst physics and maths is not my thing, I found the material easy to digest and surprisingly enjoyable!

– OM, diagnostic x-ray, RPS Training (Dec 2017)

Sincere thanks, Mark, for the energy, enthusiasm, and, excellent, training, given to my site teams, for two very different decommissioning projects. The assistance and guidance, provided, through RA requirements, and your pragmatic RPA technical support, for both challenging projects – fume filter plant decommissioning and overall site decontamination, was central to the complete success achieved, against reasonable expectations.

– Peter Williams – Project Manager

Thank you for providing a very well presented and interesting course (as always).

– Jamie Humphreys, RPS training delegate, March 2019

Thank you for an enjoyable two days. As Radiopharmacy is all new to me, I found your course really helpful and learnt a lot that will help me with my training in the cleanrooms and in Production. I have a better understanding of what I am working with and the risks that can happen in the workplace and how training in spills etc is important. I look forward to going through my Training Manual and taking the Knowledge Test
