Course - Nuclear Power Plant Training for Coating Inspectors

This course is designed specifically to train coating inspectors to conduct inspections in nuclear power plants (NPPs), and is also used as a primer to familiarize non CIP-certified personnel with NPP coating requirements. The training focuses on the unique challenges presented by a nuclear facility’s restrictive and safety-critical environment, as well as the verbatim compliance compulsory in NPPs. The course also delves deeply into government, industry, and plant-specific regulations, technical specifications, and procedures.

Classroom instruction is comprised of lectures, case studies and discussions.
