Training Courses


Leadership and Management for Introducing and Expanding Nuclear Power Programmes, National Institute of Nuclear Sciences and Technics, Paris, France

This course, which is organized jointly by the IAEA and the French Atomic Energy Commission (CEA) at the INSTN, Saclay, France, aims to help decision makers and nuclear power programmes leaders and managers in emerging nuclear power states obtain knowledge and develop the skills and abilities needed to achieve the different milestones of such an undertaking. The course is intended to provide based on the comprehensive and integrated approach of the milestones, guidance and tools to assist the key personnel in the development of the necessary managerial and technical framework to address the various infrastructure issues, with special emphasis on safety, security and safeguard.


Integrated Management Systems, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, Illinois, USA

This interregional training course aims to help Member States embarking on, or expanding, a nuclear energy programme, develop, implement, assess and continually improve management systems that incorporate international best practices, enhance safety and improve quality management and quality assurance in all the phases of developing a nuclear power plant, from feasibility studies, to siting, design, construction, commissioning, operation, and decommissioning. The ultimate objective is to help future owners/operators, regulators, suppliers and other organizations connected to nuclear facilities and activities establish management systems that meet IAEA requirements.


Management and Safety Infrastructure for Introducing and Expanding Nuclear Power Programmes, Argonne National Laboratory, Argonne, Illinois, USA

This course, which is organized jointly by the IAEA and the US Department of Energy (DOE) at the ANL, aims at helping decision makers and those responsible for developing and implementing a nuclear programme in countries embarking on or expanding their nuclear power programme obtain knowledge and develop the skills and abilities needed for success in this undertaking. Course activities revolve around three major inter-related objectives: (i) providing knowledge of 19 issues a State has to consider when establishing a nuclear power programme and the actions necessary to establish the safety infrastructure; (ii) sensitizing participants about the specific processes, organization and management systems related to the nuclear power business; and (iii) further strengthening the networking among emerging nuclear power countries and sharing international and field experiences.
