Nuclear Power Plant Training for Coatings Inspectors Course
The course is designed specifically to train coating inspectors to conduct inspections in nuclear power plants (NPPs) and is also used as a primer to familiarize non-CIP-certified personnel with NPP coating requirements. The training focuses on the unique challenges presented by a nuclear facility’s restrictive and safety-critical environment, as well as the verbatim compliance compulsory in NPPs. The course also delves deeply into government, industry, and plant-specific regulations, technical specifications, and procedures through lectures, case studies, and discussions.
