In addition to the training of operating personnel, the Guidebook deals with the role and responsibilities of management; the training of management and maintenance personnel; organizations involved in training; and more effective and efficient methods of SAT analysis.
Contents: 1. Introduction; 2. The role of management; 3. The role of training organizations and the organization of training; 4. SAT methodology overview; 5. Analysis; 6. Design; 7. Development; activities and technical co-operation in NPP personnel training and qualification.
