CNA receives nuclear substance, radiation license renewal

January 25, 2018

The College of the North Atlantic has received a renewed license for its Non-Destructive Testing Technician program and its Welding Engineering Technician programs, which involve the storage and handling of nuclear and radioactive materials. The renewal was granted for successfully meeting the regulatory requirements of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC) - Nuclear Substance and Radiation Devices Licensing Division. “The room that holds the sources and the X-ray tube are built within the standards of the CNSC, and it allows us to do our work without impacting the general public,” explained CNA Executive Radiation Safety Officer Dion Devoe. “We have a really safe environment and we pick up no radiation here because of the thickness of the vault, and we do not perform radiography outside the vault.” CNA
