The International Training Course for Newcomer Countries on Nuclear Security Systems and Measures for the Implementation of a National Nuclear Power Programme was held at ROSATOM-CICE&T from 17 to 21 October 2016.
This course was organized by the IAEA in cooperation with the Government of the Russian Federation through the State Atomic Energy Corporation “Rosatom” and the ROSATOM CENTRAL INSTITUTE FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION AND TRAINING.
The course was attended by more than 20 top and middle managers from the nuclear energy programme implementing organizations of embarking states (Bangladesh, Egypt, Indonesia, Jordan, Nigeria, Poland, United Arab Emirates, Viet Nam) as well as from France, Germany, Netherlands and Japan involved in the establishment of sustainable nuclear security infrastructures for the development and implementation of national nuclear power programmes.
The purpose of the course was to describe and discuss basic elements and major phases of the development and sustainable functioning of nuclear security infrastructure for the realization of a national nuclear power programmes.
In the opening address Rector of the ROSATOM-CICE&T Dr. Seleznev stated that “We welcome new entrants for cooperation in nuclear power development for peaceful purposes and ready to share our experience to develop nuclear infrastructure in the countries embarking on nuclear power programmes. Russia being a technological donor does recognize its responsibility in supporting new entrants. Our courses, on nuclear technologies, safety and security based on Systematic Approach to Training provide a unique opportunity for the staff of emerging Nuclear Energy Programme Implementing Organization (NEPIO), regulatory body and operating organization to receive from-the-first-hand experience of Russian nuclear stakeholders. Materials of this course were originally developed by ROSATOM-CICE&T and successfully used in 2015-2016 for training of the groups experts from newcomer states. Early this year the materials were submitted to the IAEA for review, update and international application. We are satisfied that this pilot international course, sponsored from Russian contribution to the IAEA Nuclear Security Fund, is hosted by our institution. We also believe in continuation of ROSATOM-CICE&T – IAEA cooperation on nuclear security training in future.”
