The radiography course is delivered on a correspondence basis and all candidates will be allocated a personal tutor who will be available for support and guidance throughout the duration of the course.
Upon enrolment, learning material will be provided to include a module of information to ensure knowledge is gained according to the NEBDN syllabus to prepare for mandatory examinations.
All candidates must be GDC registered at the point of enrolment and have access to participate in the taking and development of dental x-rays including Dental Panoramic Tomography (OPG), Bitewings, Periapical, Occlusals and Cephs.
This course contains multiple elements including; the theory section covering Physics, Radiation, Radiation Protection, Apparatus & Equipment, Films & Processing and Digital Imaging to name a few.
The NEBDN Record Of Competence (ROC) requires candidates to assist within their specialised role for a number of patients, all of which will be supervised by their workplace mentor who provides feedback on all documentation. The ROC also compromises of case studies as well as supplementary outcomes to prove both the necessary knowledge and understanding have been gained. The ROC is expected to be completed within the first three months after enrolment.
