The new Remote X-ray Operators Course. has been designed and written by both rural generalist doctors and experienced radiographers to improve the quality of training for those professionals wishing to gain their Remote X-ray Operators licence. This online course focuses on the theoretical knowledge and provides a basic overview of how to convert that knowledge into practice. There are six modules, and it is anticipated it would take about 18 hours to complete. The course is a FREE self-paced course that can be re-visited at any time to refresh. It is also open to all health professions.
Please note completion of the course does not enable you to obtain a X-ray licence on its own, however provides background to the practical component requirements and application. Further details on how to arrange the practical component are included in the online module.
If you are a rural generalist or rural generalist trainee that requires support to access the practical component, please contact the Tasmanian Rural Generalist Pathway Coordination Unit (TRGP CU) at email@example.com.
