Work package 5

WP5 deals with the development and application of mechanisms for the evaluation of training material, events and providers. In Europe, a vast number of training events, material and providers exist. Given that formal recognition is required for RPEs, it would be prudent for training providers involved in the RPE training process to also be formally recognised. The aim of this WP5 is develop a mechanism for the comparison, through a transparent and objective methodology, of training materials, courses and training providers, which can be used by regulatory authorities to evaluate their national radiation protection training programme for compliance with the ERPTS. It is obvious that close collaboration with the national regulatory authorities will be established in order to maximise acceptance of the stakeholders. A survey of applied quality protocols for training material, training event, and training providers in the member states will be carried out. The proposed quality procedures will be in line with world-wide standards like ISO taking into account the protocols currently in use in Europe.

Objectives

To develop a mechanism for the comparison, through a transparent and objective methodology, of training materials, courses and training providers, which can be used by regulatory authorities to evaluate their national radiation protection training programme for compliance with the ERPTS.

 

Description of work

  • Organisation of kick-off and subsequent meetings with the WP5 participants.
  • Defining a detailed work programme for WP5 and subsequent division of tasks.
  • Identification of the elements that are essential for the comparison of training materials.
  • Identification of the elements that are essential for the comparison of training courses, including exercises, On-the-Job-Training, Work Experience, examinations, etc.
  • Defining the range of detail for course elements that is sufficient for compliance with the ERPTS.
  • Identification of the elements that are essential for the comparison of training providers.
  • Setting up and apply a quality assurance protocol for the comparison of training materials, courses and providers on the basis of the above-mentioned elements.
  • Reporting to the Steering Committee.
 

Deliverables

  • WD5.1   Methodology and quality assurance protocol for comparison and evaluation of training material.
  • WD5.2   Methodology and quality assurance protocol for comparison and evaluation of training events.
  • WD5.3   Methodology and quality assurance protocol for comparison and evaluation of training providers.
