Ionactive delivers several Radiation Protection Officer (RPO) courses in Dubai each year. The courses are hosted by our training partner RNA Safety International. The courses are based on local UAE legislation which mirrors IAEA standards, so is suitable for all delegates in the Gulf region, North Africa and further afield.

RPO Training in Dubai has been delivered to many companies in UAE and beyond. Examples include Dubai Police, Dubai Customs, Dubai Airport, Emirates Air, Etihad Air, ADNOC, ENOC, SEHA Group, EMAAR Group, Jumeirah Group of Hotels, Korea Hydro & Nuclear Power and many more. In a similar fashion to Ionactive UK RPS courses, the RPO courses we run in UAE with RNA Safety International are open to all users of ionising radiation. We always train mixed delegate groups as this allows the RPO to understand their own radiation risks in context with other radiation users.
