Training & continuing education

Like other scientists and engineers, radioactive waste management professionals are a highly educated group. Science and engineering are constantly evolving. Therefore, numerous training courses are offered to professionals by various institutions to provide updates on current "state-of-the-art". Training courses are also offered to cover changing regulations, to train workers for new fields, and to provide entry level education into a profession. Links to all types of radioactive waste and nuclear related training can be found here. Note: Links identified with are in Adobe Acrobat PDF format. You may need a special plugin to access these pages. Some web sites may not be in English. See index here for language codes, such as    JP / EN .
