CRPA(R) Prep, February 2022

The CRPA(R) designation is the highest level of competency for radiation safety professionals recognized by CRPA at the Canadian level. The annual exam is typically administered at the annual CRPA conference. While the conference and the exam were cancelled in 2020, and there was no conference in 2021, the association did find a way to offer the registration exam last year. The first remote CRPA(R) exam was held on November 28, 2021, in Burnaby, BC, and Hamilton, ON.
