Course: AP1000 SRO Management Certification Course (A-SRO-9)

Course Code: Course Name:
A-SRO-9 AP1000 Senior Reactor Operator Management Certification Course
Course ID: Course Duration:
N/A 9.0 Week(s)

Description:

The Senior Reactor Operator (SRO) Management Certification Course prepares the successful student to direct the operation of the Westinghouse AP1000 plant under normal, abnormal, and emergency plant conditions. This course is intended for nuclear power plant managers, supervisors, and personnel requiring integrated plant system and operational knowledge. The following pre-requisite knowledge is required for success in this course:

  • Introductory-level knowledge of Pressurized Water Reactor (PWR) fundamentals, systems, and operation
  • Basic math skills including logarithms and algebraic manipulation of equations
  • Human Performance Fundamentals

Consistent with the Nuclearning®Educational Model, the Senior Reactor Operator ManagementCertification 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 classroom exercises, control board demonstrations, group work exercises, student presentations, and hands-on main control room simulator operation. Industry operating events are incorporated throughout the course to provide context for the knowledge and skills acquired, and to keep nuclear safety in the forefront of all system and personnel interactions.

The Senior Reactor Operator Management Certification Course is nine (9) weeks in length. A typical course is made up of one (1) operating team, but can accommodate up to two (2) teams. Since hands-on learning in the simulator control room is an integral part of the course, the recommended number of students for each operating team is five (5).

The maximum number of students for this course is ten (10).
