Department of Dosimetry and Application of Ionizing Radiation

The aim of the subject is to provide a self-contained overview of the radiation protection with a special focus on general principles. The subject is based on the actual ICRP recommendation no. 103 and other documents, which specifies radiation protection in the Czech Republic and EU. The course is accepted as training, which allows obtaining special competence in radiation protection. Participants will receive an appropriate certificate of attendance when fulfil all requirements defined in the permit of SONS.
