According to international and national legislation, various professional profiles require education and training in radiation protection. In Belgium, a new regulatory framework entered into force in early 2020, implementing the latest requirements of the 2013/59/EURATOM EU BSS Directive. With the healthcare sector being under enormous pressure during this health crisis, various temporary measures were taken by the national regulator for the health professionals. From a practical point of view, training courses in radiation protection were organised in adapted circumstances to prevent further spreading of the COVID-19 virus. This article highlights the Belgian pragmatic approach of the regulator with regard to radiation protection education and training during the COVID-19 crisis, as well as the experience of a national training centre organising radiation protection education and training for diverse target audiences.
