The development of the training courses used the Systematic Approach to Training methodology, proposed by the IAEA. Available modules depend on the target group and the training courses aim to give the competencies at EQF Level from 3 to 6. They are designed to cover different aspects needed for work in nuclear related areas. They support the emerging problem of lack of enough competent staff in nuclear industry and the need for nuclearization.
Supported training forms cover classroom and/or practical (laboratory or workshop) training. E-learning courses are provided using Moodle based platform CLP4NET (with the support of the IAEA). Special attention is paid to the training on safety culture and soft skills and train the trainers approach.
Courses are delivered in English or Russian depending on the request. Trainees receive a set of training materials, which consists of trainee’s handbook, presentations and testing materials.
Courses are delivered preferably at the premises of the training provider clearly specified for each of the courses, due to the necessity of using specialized laboratories and installations, and possibilities for practical exercises.
Alternatively, courses can also be carried out at the customer’s premises upon request.
Each trainee is provided with a certificate of completion.
