Decontamination Scientists

On 1st December 2017, the Academy for Healthcare Science and the Institute of Decontamination Sciences announced the publication of a directory for individuals who have attained an Institute of Decontamination Sciences Technical Certificate.

The Decontamination Scientist directory sits within the Academy’s overall regulatory framework, sharing the administrative functions and oversight while enabling work to continue with the professional group and facilitating engagement with those on the Directory.

At its launch, the Institute said, “it is an exciting time for Decontamination personnel as we are now incorporated into the Life Science workforce. The educational pathway has been developed under the Modernising Scientific Career process and we see the development of a Directory as a first step for our members”.

Janet Monkman, Chief Executive and Registrar for the Academy said, “the Academy is delighted to welcome such an enthusiastic group as its first group onto a Directory and we look forward to welcoming new cohorts of Technical Certificate holders in the future”.

If you have gained an IDSc Technical Certificate but are unable to find your name on the Decontamination Scientist directory, please contact the IDSc Director of Education directly via the Institute’s website.
