Pulvertaft Hand Centre web based mini c-arm image intensifier course

It is usually a requirement to pass this or a similar course before using a mini c-arm. The course is delivered online by The Pulvertaft Hand Centre. It was reviewed in the BMJ Careers when it was run in Derby over a single afternoon.

It costs £130. They estimate ten hours of work is required before taking the online assessment. A pass mark of 70% is required to get the certificate.

The course is delivered in five units. The course material is downloaded as PDFs and there is also some web based information.

The course satisfies the theoretical knowledge required by the legislation under the Ionising Radiations Regulations 1999 and Ionising radiation (Medical Exposure) Regulations 2000. You may need some local practical training before actually using the mini c-arm.

The Pulvertaft Hand Centre runs a number of other courses.
