This course is being held over three consecutive years from 2019 to 2021 and took place over two weeks in 2019. It is to take place over another two weeks in 2020 and there will be one more week in 2021, too. The training courses for 2019 and 2020 have been based on lectures, discussions, practical activities, field trips, country reports, and action plans in principle. However, COVID-19 has led to changing the format of this course for 2020, utilizing e-learning techniques. Thus, the course format will be based on lectures, Q&A, country reports, and action plan activities. Thus it is strongly recommended that each participant prepares a place to become absorbed in his/her e-learning in their country (e.g. at the office, at home, etc.). In addition, those who participated in the programme from 2019 to 2020 should be participating in the programme planned for 2021.
Therefore, the nomination of the participants for the 2020 course will mainly come from the countries that participated in the KOICA-IAEA Joint Training Programme on the Establishment of the Long Term Management Plan by Strengthening the Capacity for Diagnostic and Therapeutic Radioisotopes and Radiopharmaceutical Application held from 23 September - 4 October, 2019 in Seoul, Korea.
Qualifications and experience for participants are shown as follows:
1) Be proficient in English with good listening comprehension and communication skills
2) Be managerial or directorial level public officials in charge of the enactment of policies or regulations in the radiochemistry or radiopharmaceutical fields
3) Possessing at least a bachelor's degree in science/engineering; management qualifications will be an added advantage
