10 CFR 50.69 - 10 CFR 50.69 Integrated Decision-Making Panel (IDP) Training
Dates:
9/11/2017 - 9/11/2017 @ WebEx Training Center
Pricing:
$0.00
10 CFR 50.69 uses a risk informed categorization process which enables us to adjust certain requirements of safety related equipment. The Integrated Decision-Making Panel (IDP) is a crucial part of this process. This course explains the 10 CFR 50.69 process and prepares students to participate on the IDP. Expert instructors for this course are from various Westinghouse divisions. This training will be delivered using WebEx training center.
ASME 200 - ASME Code Section III and Section XI
Dates:
Pricing:
Please contact us for scheduling and pricing.
This course is designed to give engineers a working knowledge of the ASME Code, Sections III and XI, including an introduction to basic fracture mechanics which has important applications in Section XI. The subject matter presented will include the basic theories of stress analysis an their application to ASME Code requirements, examples of solved problems, and problems to be solved in class by the student. After these problems are solved, the proper answers will be reviewed and questions answered before proceeding. Both theory and applications will be aimed at developing an understanding of the technology, to allow simple checks of the work of others as well as capability to solve problems directly. Also included  will be sources of material properties information and the technical basis documents for the code, and references for further study. In addition to Sections III and XI, this course contains lectures providing an overview of Sections II, V, and IX, sections which are referred to by both Sections III and XI.
SNE594 - Station Nuclear Engineer (SNE) Applications
Dates:
Pricing:
Please contact us for scheduling and pricing.
This course gives the student a level of practical knowledge sufficient for evaluation of core power distribution limits, and performance of physics testing required during start-up and normal power operations, and other support functions for nuclear operations.   Station Nuclear Engineer Applications offers the student an opportunity to interface with Westinghouse experts in the various areas of the station nuclear engineer's day-to-day job.  Instructors for this portion of the course are from various Westinghouse divisions.   The course starts with fuel management, emphasizing how the student can ensure proper core reload from an economical as well as a performance viewpoint.  Core control is studied in depth, emphasizing methods of handling xenon oscillations and flux distributions. In addition, the core design report and its applications are reviewed.  Next the operational aspects of nuclear engineering are addressed.  This includes the basis for selected technical specifications; considerations in adjusting setpoints for OTDT, OPDT, and NI reactor trips; and the application of the Westinghouse F5 procedure.  In addition, each student has the opportunity to inspect and obsserve the operation of refueling equipment.   Core physics testing is taught in-depth.  During this period, the student receives hands-on experience with the reactivity computer.  This course also includes demonstrations of various plant transients on the full-scope SNUPPS simulator.
SNE714 - Station Nuclear Engineer (SNE) Refresher
Dates:
Pricing:
Please contact us for scheduling and pricing.
The Station Nuclear Engineer Refresher (SNE) course provides advanced and refresher training for experienced reactor engineers in the areas of applied theory, fuel performance, core control, and recent events and advances.   The SNE Refresher course is an intensive program.  Each topic is taught by a subject matter expert — a Westinghouse SRO-certified training engineer or an experienced engineer from one of the various Westinghouse divisions.  The training is primarily classroom instruction; some topics are covered in a seminar or workshop format. 
TAA&MCD - Transient & Accident Analysis and Mitigating Core Damage Course (10 day)
Dates:
Pricing:
Please contact us for scheduling and pricing.

The Transient & Accident Analysis and Mitigating Core Damage (TAA/MCD) Training Course will prepare the successful participant to perform technical support activities involving application of accident analyses.  It does not provide sufficient experience to perform ab-initio accident analyses.  It does not describe all categories of accidents and does not address every specific event included in the accident analyses. This course is intended for engineers and licensed operators responsible for planning, analysis, and operational activities affected by accident analysis.  No previous knowledge is required, but knowledge of major plant systems and understanding of reactor physics and core thermal-hydraulic concepts are helpful. Consistent with the Nuclearning® Educational Model, the Transient & Accident Analysis and Mitigating Core Damage course incorporates numerous student-centered learning activities to help the student learn and remember the concepts being studied.  This approach puts the student at the center of the learning process making him an active participant in all learning activities. Specifically, the course incorporates instructor facilitated discussions, classroom exercises, and group work exercises. The Transient & Accident Analysis and Mitigating Core Damage Training Course is ten (10) days (80 hours) in length. Since interactivity and participation are integral parts of the course, the maximum number of students should be held to twenty-five (25) or fewer.
