CICE&T specialists were awarded the Lenin Komsomol Prize in the field of science and technology for software development for the simulator. The unique experience of simulator building set the ground for the entire era of nuclear industry personnel training.
A group of CICE&T specialists developed the concept of the strategic programme for capacity building in the nuclear power generation complex. The study results confirmed the industry readiness for restructuring.
The Moscow Continuing Education Institute “Atomenergo” and the Institute of Advanced Professional Education “Atomprof” were united on the platform of CICE&T. The union resulted in the foundation of the Moscow and St. Petersburg Branches of CICE&T.
