This publication presents a set of training standards and conditions, based on the internationally accepted systematic approach to training (SAT) methodology, which can be used by any nuclear facility to objectively evaluate the quality of its training, learning and development infrastructure, processes and programmes. It offers guidance and options for peer review processes, including IAEA assistance, and guidance on creating independent validation bodies, although the main focus is the self-assessment methodology as this is key to self-awareness and improvement. The use of SAT offers significant advantages over more conventional, curricula-driven training in terms of consistency, efficiency and management control, leading to greater reliability of training results and enhanced safety and efficiency of the plant.
