The business of nuclear radiation detectors (also called radiation sensors) requires extensive education and training. For the purpose of radiation detection, companies offer various types of radiation detectors such as an electromagnetic radiation detector, heat radiation detector and gamma radiation detector. Therefore, if you want to buy a radiation detector, you must have basic information in order to make the right choice.
If you wish to enter the business of radiation detectors and radiation monitors, you will need to train your employees on the technology and operation of a radiation detection system. If you are a radiation detector manufacturer, you will need to keep your knowledge up-to-date in order to stay ahead of the competition.
To educate yourself and/or your workforce about radiation detectors, you can:
- Browse various resources that provide basic information about radiation detectors
- Enroll in educational courses at recognized institutions
- Join associations for professionals in the field of radiation detection equipment
Understand the basics of radiation detectors and the relevant terminologyIf you have very little exposure to radiation detectors, you can learn the basics by browsing through different resources, such as websites of universities and international projects in astrophysics.
AMS Experiment), a collaborative project of many institutions in Asia, Europe and North America. You can also read through basic information about radiation detectors at HyperPhysics, a part of GSU (Georgia State University) that provides information in physics.
Join educational courses that cover the knowledge of radiation detectorsRecognized institutions and some radiation detector manufacturers offer educational courses in radiation detection technology that include detailed education on radiation detectors. You can enroll in these courses to gain thorough technical knowledge about radiation detectors.
School of Health Sciences at Purdue University in Indiana. If you have basic knowledge about radiation detectors, you can join continual education courses in radiation detection at PDHcenter.com, a recognized continuing education provider.
