Vocational training providers

Providers of exposure device operator vocational training

It is recommended that vocational training for exposure device operators (EDOs) be completed before the start of on-the-job training. However, training may also be started during the first few weeks of employment.

Requirements for training providers

It is important that the vocational training providers give training that is current to industry and regulatory requirements and also meets the basis for knowledge detailed in the CSA Group's document CSA PCP-09, Certified Exposure Device Operator Personnel Certification Guide.

The Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) requires vocational training facilities to provide each person who successfully completes the EDO vocational training program the following:

  • Proof of the candidate's acceptable skills in mathematics or successful completion of the Natural Resources Canada pre-certification math exam or an equivalent exam acceptable to the CNSC. This proof may be in the form of a letter signed by the vocational training provider.
  • A course description and curriculum indicating the subjects covered and the duration of the candidate's training.
  • A training certificate signed by an authorized individual indicating the candidate's successful completion of 40 hours of EDO vocational training and the training provider's contact information. The certificate must also include the full legal name of the trainee and the date the training was completed.
