 Course Overview

This CNS course will present an extensive overview of the important disciplines in CANDU reactor technology and safety. The course provides an introduction to the basic design, technology, and operation of nuclear reactors. It will also present the major systems in a nuclear plant, as well as the important CANDU reactor safety principles and systems. How to prepare and execute safety analysis to meet licensing demands will also be discussed.

The CNS is presenting this course to enhance the professional and technical capabilities of its members (and non-members) working in, or interested in, the nuclear industry. The course is ideally suited for beginning professionals, but also beneficial to experienced professionals.
