ONLINE TRAINING: Common Questions Answered

ONLINE TRAINING: Common Questions Answered

Q: What support is available to the delegate?
A: The delegate will have access to advice from an accredited RPA to answer any questions on the technical content of the course, or to ask questions about how the course content relates to their own work. They’ll be able to ask the RPA questions throughout their course in the same way as when they are attending a classroom led session.

Q: How long does the course take?
A: It depends on the individual. We would estimate the course will take around 2 ½ hours to sit.

Q: In what format is the technical support?
A: The delegate will be assigned a course tutor at the beginning of the course, and will be able to email the course tutor at any time from when they first log in, to when they submit the final assessment. The course tutor will email back as soon as is practicable. The delegate is able to log out of the course and wait until they have received a reply from the course tutor. If necessary, the RPA will contact the delegate by phone for a chat before the delegate continues with the course.

Q: How is the quality of the training maintained?
A: A qualified Radiation Protection Adviser telephones a selection of course attendees to chat to them and gauge their understanding of the course content via a series of informal technical questions to the standard of this course. The call will take no more than 10 minutes of your time, and will be within a week of the completion of this course.


Q: How is the course assessed?
A: All of our courses are assessed. You will often be asked to complete multiple choice questions between the modules. You must be absolutely sure you have understood the module before you proceed to these multiple choice questions as you will not be able to go back and look at the course content. If you do get stuck on these questions you have the option to email your course tutor.

At the end of the course, you will be provided with a final assessment. You can complete this assessment in your own time electronically. Once you are happy with your answers, click ‘submit’. Your assessment will be sent to an RPA for marking. If the RPA is satisfied that you have understood the course content, your result and your certificate will be sent to you by post. If the RPA does not believe that you have satisfactorily understood the course, he will advise you of this and contact you to discuss the possibility of your attending a classroom lead basic radiation protection course.

Q: What if I am unable to complete the final assessment online?
A: If you have any queries before you start the assessment then you can always email your course tutor. Don’t forget, the course tutors will call a selection of all course attendees to confirm that the quality of the course is being maintained, and that all who sit the course have understood its content.

If for some reason you are unable to complete the assessment on line, you can print it off and write the answers in by hand. You can then send your completed assessment by post to:

Course Tutor,
The Library | Harwell Oxford | Didcot

Please be aware that if you choose this option, you will get a call from your course tutor to talk to you about the course to make sure you have understood its content.
