Training in Emergency Preparedness and Response

The Incident and Emergency Centre (IEC) offers a wide range of training courses and workshops to address the needs of Member States in the development, maintenance and testing of their emergency preparedness and response (EPR) arrangements for nuclear and radiological incidents and emergencies.

The IAEA training programme in EPR aims to transfer knowledge and practical know-how and to create a sustainable learning and development framework in participating Member States. The training programme targets a broad range of professionals and practitioners in the area of nuclear and radiological EPR, including:

  • Decision makers
  • Emergency planners
  • Emergency response coordinators
  • Staff of regulatory bodies
  • Radiation protection officers
  • Radiological assessors
  • Medical personnel
  • First responders
  • Training officers
  • Public information officers

The training packages were developed based on specific EPR-series documents and relevant IAEA Safety Standards on EPR.

While Member States are encouraged to use this training material, additional support and training can also be provided by the IAEA through its Technical Cooperation Programme.
