Nuclear Site Licence Training Launched

The first of three short online courses focussing on the Nuclear Site Licence & Licence conditions is available for enrolment via the Nuclear Training Network.

Following feedback from member companies requesting more industry accessible training around Site Licence Conditions, NSAN has developed a suite of courses covering the topic.

  • Introduction to the Nuclear Site Licence and Licence Conditions
  • Nuclear Site Licence Compliance for Supply Chain Employees (coming soon)
  • Nuclear Site Licence Compliance for Licensee Employees (coming soon)

The introductory course is aimed at individuals who work within the nuclear industry either directly for a Nuclear Installation (the Licensee) or a Supply Chain Company.

On completion of the course individuals will be able to:

  • Demonstrate awareness of what a nuclear Site Licence is and why we have them
  • Recognise what Licence Conditions are
  • Demonstrate an awareness of what ‘adequate arrangements’ are
  • Demonstrate an awareness of key legislation that applies to nuclear sites in Great Britain
  • Appreciate how the Office for Nuclear Regulation (ONR) regulates nuclear Site Licencees

This initial course is designed to provide a basic understanding. To provide a deeper understanding the Supply Chain and Licensee courses will go in to more detail of the typical responsibilities of an employee working on a licenced nuclear facility in Great Britain. They will focus on key conditions that are particularly relevant and important to understand.

Jo Tipa, Managing Director of NSAN commented;

“The development of the Site Licence courses came from nuclear companies expressing the need for online learning that would enable their employees and contractors to better understand, and therefore comply with, the UK’s Nuclear Site Licence and Licence Conditions.

The introductory course has been designed to be easily included into induction programmes for new entrants, or to be used as revision tool for more experienced personnel.

I would like to thank all of the nuclear companies involved in the working group along with the Office for Nuclear Regulation, who have given their time and guidance to enable the development of these courses to meet the needs of industry.”

The introduction course is priced at £90 +VAT, with employees of member companies receiving a 50% discount (£45+VAT). It is estimated that the course will take approximately 1 - 1.5 hours to complete.

To enrol on the course, individuals should visit www.nucleartrainingnetwork.com and register directly.
