National Registry of Radiation Protection Technologists

The National Registry of Radiation Protection Technologists (NRRPT) evolved from the need for improved training programs and certification of radiation protection technicians. Under guidance from the American Board of Health Physics, a committee of industry technologists studied the feasibility of registration and recommended to the board that the technologist's registration program be implemented.

Since its inception, the NRRPT has registered more than 5,000 technologists throughout the country from many industry facilities and each year more and more interest is expressed. Due to this interest, training programs and preparation materials are being continuously upgraded to accommodate candidates, and as a result, the level of competence is being raised nationwide within the industry.

The increased presence of Radiation Protection Technologists in the Health Physics community is adding to the credibility of radiation protection, which is in demand by both regulatory agencies and the general public.
