CRPA(R): Highest level of radiation safety competency in Canada / (A)ACRP : Le niveau de compétence en radioprotection le plus élevé du Canada
The CRPA(R) program is a professional certification program for radiation safety professionals. The designation is the highest level of competency recognized by CRPA at the Canadian level. The designation ensures regulators, employers, and members of the public can have confidence in the qualifications of a Registered Radiation Safety Professional (RRSP) who has a CRPA(R) credential.
The certification process considers the following:
- academic achievement
- experience in the radiation field
- successful completion of the CRPA(R) exam (based on identified core competencies)
Retaining the designation requires continuing education and professional development, monitored through a registration maintenance program.
