Predisposal Management of Radioactive Waste - Training Courses and Workshops
Training courses provide an opportunity to train participants from Member States that need information and guidance on safe predisposal management of radioactive waste based on cost-effective technological solutions and good practices. Such training courses are regularly organized based on standardized training modules. The modules include training for:
- Waste operators based on standardized syllabus that combines lectures and technology demonstrations and is best conducted in a designated regional Centre of Excellence.
- Designers, operators and regulators based on an integrated package that combines technology, safety and security for setting up modular waste processing and storage facilities and is targeted at Member States with small volume of waste generation.
Two weeks training courses have been organized since 2005. New development includes considerations for longer training up to four weeks devoted to predisposal.
To provide opportunity to discuss best practices among peers and share information and lessons learned, the workshops - organized in the framework of regional projects - are designed as required to address specific needs of participating Member States. These workshops also provide an opportunity to present, discuss and collect feedback on the draft technical documents developed by the Agency. The workshops in the framework of national projects are specifically devoted to particular national issues.
