CANDU Reactor Safety Course

Courtyard by Marriott Downtown Toronto
475 Yonge St.

Course Overview

Safety is of primary consideration in the design and operation of nuclear reactors.  If nuclear power generation is to survive, it has to meet ever-increasing safety demands.  To address the safety-training needs of the Canadian nuclear industry, the CNS is once again happy to offer the CANDU Reactor Safety course.  Previous offerings of this course were very successful and enrollment has been constantly high.  This course is eligible for Continuing Education Units in the context of the Engineering Institute of Canada Continuing Education program.

The course provides an introduction to CANDU reactor safety and licensing principles, at the same time offering an overview of the major systems in a CANDU plant.  The course is ideally suited for beginning professionals, but also beneficial to experienced professionals who wish to broaden their knowledge beyond their own field of expertise.

Continental breakfast, buffet lunch, and coffee breaks are provided each day.  There will also be a banquet on the second evening of the course.  The after-dinner speech at the banquet will highlight a timely topic in the Canadian Nuclear industry. 

Topics to be covered in the course include:

  • Design and licensing fundamentals
  • Core-physics safety analysis
  • Thermalhydraulics
  • Safety-related systems
  • Deterministic and probabilistic safety analyses
  • Severe core-damage assessment
  • Safety R&D
