The Canadian Radiation Protection Association is a professional organization that supports the development and implementation of radiation safety programs in Canada.

CRPA Bulletin

The CRPA-ACRP Bulletin is a key communication tool that provides members with information regarding the Association’s activities and serves as a forum where Registered Radiation Protection Professionals can share insights, advice, and valuable solutions.

Professional Designation & Exams

The CRPA(R) designation is the highest level of competency recognized by the CRPA at the Canadian level. The attainment of the designation by a Registered Radiation Safety Professional (RRSP) is determined by: academic achievement, experience in the radiation field and successful completion of an exam based on identified core competencies, which is administered by the CRPA.

When is the next CRPA(R) exam?

The next CRPA(R) exam will be held on Monday, June 3, 2024 in Edmonton, AB at the CRPA 2024 Conference venue (River Cree Resort and Casino).
