The CEDO exam preparation course prepares students for the Certified Exposure Device Operator (CEDO) exam that is administered by Natural Resources Canada.  The course will consist of live training that is virtual.  Details can be found at this link.

CEDO Course

The CEDO course is the newest of the courses we offer, and this upcoming session is the first of them.  It is based on the vocational training requirements listed in CSA PCP-09 and provides the student with 40-hours of instruction in radiation safety, regulatory requirements, and theory and practice of gamma radiography.  The course is designed to prepare students for work as an industrial radiographer and successfully pass the CEDO examination administered by the Natural Resources Canada.  The course will be in-person at our Edmonton location.  Find out more at this page on our website.

Shop Online with a Purchase Order

Buying every day, consumable items off the IR website has been a convenience for those who make their purchases with credit cards. They have the option to ship or pick their purchase up at either our Edmonton or our Burlington location. Unfortunately, those who purchase with purchase orders have not been able to shop online with us.  Those clients have been missing out on the convenience, speed and 24/7 ability to get what they need. Now that has changed!  Introducing web shopping by PO.  That’s right.  Now instead of entering a credit card number, buyers can enter a PO number.  To use this option, all you need is to have a Net 30 account in place with us.  It really is that easy.  Contact us to get set up.
