Training and development (decontamination service managers)
Training for managerial positions in decontamination services is available at various levels
Training and development
As a decontamination technician you will usually have been supported to achieve the IDSc Technical Certificate Decontamination. This will be important for supervisory positions.
To develop your career into more senior supervisory and junior managerial positions, you’ll be supported by your employer to study for the Foundation Degree in Decontamination Sciences. This course is currently only offered by Anglia Ruskin University on a distance learning basis, and can be studied either full-time over 2 years or part-time over 4 years.
A BSc (Hons) Decontamination Sciences programme is available as a 2-year top up on a distance learning basis, also by Anglia Ruskin University.
Continuing professional development
No matter what level you are working at, as part of your development you will be expected to do 'Continuing Professional Development' (CPD) to show that you are keeping yourself up to date with the policies and procedures in your area of work.
