Fantastic Instructors! Effective Training! 5 out of 5 Stars!

Alysha Laframboise, RSO, Abraflex (2004) Ltd.

As the business continued to expand on service offerings to our customers, having additional certified Radiation Safety Officers became a necessity. RSRCT lived up to the task of providing training to several of our staff members through their Radiation Safety Officer course. Each participant successfully completed the course and learned a lot in a short period of time. The instructors were extremely knowledgeable in their field and were able to grab the attention of all participants in their fun and upbeat course. The instructors were well organized, and they took their time to ensure each person understood what was being taught and even went the extra mile to go over situations specific to our company which was very helpful. The course material and more useful information was supplied for future reference. Months after the course our RSO’s have proven the training received was an effective solution to our needs. In the event more training is required in the future we will definitely use RSRCT again!

I have never encountered anyone who is as willing to give her time to educate physics residents - irrespective of how busy she is... as Kathy (Mah). Not one to give cursory answers, she will go to great lengths to educate when prompted with a question, giving balanced and well-informed answers.
