About the Course

The XRF course at IR will cover an introduction to basic principles and applications of XRF through a presentation and hands on training. The course will cover both the theoretical and practical components necessary to meet the requirements of NRCan NDTC XRF operator program based on Health Canada Safety Code 32 and ISO 20807.  Attendees have the option to take the examination immediately following the course, at the course location.

About the Instructor

The instructor for the XRF course is Pieter Medema, Sales & Technical Applications at IR.  Pieter joined IR in June 2016.  He has extensive knowledge of our SciAps products and has been supporting that line since we brought them on board in 2018.  Prior to joining IR, Pieter was an instructor in his homeland of the Netherlands, for over seven years.  He was integral in developing the course content and ensuring IR achieved certification with NRCan.
