NSAN has developed three short online courses focussing on the Nuclear Site Licence & Licence conditions all of which are available for enrolment via the Nuclear Training Network.
The suite of courses has been developed following feedback from member companies requesting more industry accessible training around Site Licence Conditions. The courses focus on what a Site Licence is, what types of nuclear sites are licensed and why the site licence process is required. They also provide insight into what the 36 Licence Conditions are, how the Licensee is required to implement these and the key legislation and regulation process in Great Britain.
There are three courses within the suite;
The introductory course, launched in April, provides an introduction to the Nuclear Site Licence and the Site Licence Conditions. It is aimed at individuals working directly for a Nuclear Installation (the 'Licensee') and individuals working in the Supply Chain for nuclear.
The additional two courses in the suite build on the knowledge learners gain from the Introduction to the Site Licence and Licence Conditions training course. Once they’ve achieved the general understanding they can then go on to specialise by taking either the Nuclear Site Licence Compliance for Licensee Employees course or the Nuclear Site Licence Compliance for Supply Chain Companies course, depending on which suits their role better.
These two courses delve in to detail of the specific site licence conditions that impact people in these roles and give greater understanding about responsibilities and the potential impacts of non-compliance.
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 courses have 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 courses are available from the Nuclear Training Network and are estimated to take around 1 hour each to complete. The Introduction to the Site Licence and Licence Conditions is offered at £90+VAT with a 50% discount for NSAN members. Nuclear Site Licence Compliance for Licensee Employees and Nuclear Site Licence Compliance for Supply Chain Companies are both offered at £70+VAT each, also with a 50% discount for NSAN members.
