IMPORTANT:

Due to the spread of the new coronavirus disease in order to ensure the safety of our participants and to keep the high level of training quality, we have come to the decision to reschedule our 2020 train-the-trainers courses and to postpone most of them until 2021. The new proposed dates can be found below under the corresponding course title. Please accept our apologies for the possible inconvenience caused. The updated information will be announced here. Please check back regularly.

The purpose of the training is to transfer nuclear education to newcomer countries through building competences of faculty members and administration of local universities in the field of nuclear and radiation technology application in industry and education

In implementing the Train-The-Trainers courses Rosatom Technical Academy cooperates extensively with ROSATOM core nuclear universities and brings you wide geography of competencies, facilities, and human capital in power and non-power applications of nuclear technologies and methodology of nuclear education.
