Knowledge management and capacity building are important to achieve and maintain the required competence of personnel working at nuclear facilities. Competence is normally understood as the ability to apply skills, knowledge and attitudes in order to perform an activity or job to specified standards. Education and training have important role in the capacity building of a nuclear operator.
Customers wishing to start a construction project of nuclear installation face often challenges in the knowhow of local personnel, especially in the environments with no former nuclear regulation or requirements. Plant vendors can fill the gap at the first place, but for committed use of nuclear power production safe operations of nuclear power plant have to be based on the local knowhow in the long term.
We have developed a standard training packages, which supports especially the learning of new build projects. The objective is to provide for educated personnel training packages, which help the personnel to integrate to the safety requirements of nuclear industry. For license holder and plant operator the design and engineering is demanding phase of a new build project. Engineering disciplines have to be mastered together with relevant code and standards in order to ensure the safe design of NPP. The focus of our training is to support new build organizations to make the safety related design effectively and efficiently.
