Work package 8

In order to monitor the effectiveness of the proposed methodologies, pilot sessions will be organised. WP8 concentrates on the organisation and supervision of at least three different modules of the ERPTS. From the evaluation and experience of such pilot events recommendations and in case improvements will be expected thus ensuring mutual feedback with the previous WPs.

The courses can be organised traditionally and/or electronically (e.g. using e-learning or distance learning). The EFTS could consist of a mix of internships and collective or individual courses, addressing a variety of profiles. Within the past ENETRAP 6FP, preliminary steps were taken with regard to the organisation and evaluation of pilot courses, using the developed e-learning platform. This experience will be used in ENETRAP II in order to further develop and test several (pilot) courses. Non-EU organisations are welcome to participate, if added value is demonstrated. In addition to the EFTS driven activities, the trainees may naturally participate in existing courses in the EU or abroad, as part of their European Passport.

Pilot courses will be organised in the domain of RP in Waste Mangement and Decommissioning, RP in Non Nuclear and Research, and other relevant application fields (to be defined in the first phase of the project).

Monitoring of the effectiveness will also be performed using existing courses, organized outside the ENETRAP II project. Examples are:

- Radioisotope Traing Course, Karlsruhe,

- Courses for RPOs in various fields, Karlsruhe

- Course for radiation protection expert (in Dutch and French), Belgium

- Modular Radiation Protection Training Scheme (RPTS) specifically targeted at new and developing RPEs, UK

-Occupational Radiation Protection: Specifities of Waste Management and Decommissioning, Germany

Objectives

  • To organise and to supervise pilot sessions of selected training events (including OJT) for RPEs according to the agreed ERPTS standard
  • To test methodologies and monitor their effectiveness 
  • To recommend improvements  for further performance if applicable
 

Description of work

  • Coordinate WP8, organise meetings with WP8 participants and select pilot session packages.
  • Organise pilot sessions for RPEs or RPOs and make advertisement (announcements, flyers etc.).
  • Fix agreed standards (course materials, performance, examination, evaluation) with local supervisors.
  • Implement pilot sessions at FTU and 2 to 3 other locations e.g. ITN (Medicine),  INSTN (EMRP) and assure quality control.
  • Evaluate the outcome from pilot sessions and summarise the results.
  • Report regularly to Steering Committee and Advisory Board and ensure feedback.
 

Deliverables

  • WD8.1 Organisation of some pilot sessions.
  • WD8.2 Report on the effectiveness of the training scheme or module.
