Health Physics Technicians (HPTs) complete training

Perry LaCelle, who manages the HPT Trainee Program under Radiological Controls, had high praise for a group of WRPS Health Physics Technicians who recently completed an extensive training course.

“The course we put them through is a difficult and challenging 21-week process. The HPTs should be very proud of themselves for all they have accomplished,” LaCelle said.

The HPTs have been assigned to various WRPS radiological control organizations.
