Announcing a new Canadian Nuclear Society course for anyone communicating about nuclear:
Everything you wanted to know about nuclear technology and were afraid they’d ask!
December 10 – 11, 2012
Quality Inn & Suites, Petawawa, Ontario
This two-day Nuclear 101 course is specifically designed for those working in the nuclear industry who do not have the benefit of a technical background. The course will provide you with a good understanding of nuclear fundamentals and will not only help you understand how our industry works, but will also provide you with the tools to explain to others in simple, factual terms how the technology works, some of the interesting twists and turns of its exciting history, and the important contribution nuclear technology makes to our society.
The course will be taught by three of Canada’s leading nuclear educators: Doug Boreham (McMaster University), Jason Donev (University of Calgary) and Jeremy Whitlock (AECL). The course will consist of three modules, and will include demonstrations, Q&A, and a discussion of each module’s relevance to public outreach:
This outreach course is being offered by the Canadian Nuclear Society (CNS).
The course is now full and registration is closed
If you are intrested in being on the waiting list for the spring 2013 Nuclear 101 course (most likely at McMaster University) please contact Jeremy Whitlock @ firstname.lastname@example.org
The cost of the 2-day course is $495 HST included and covers all materials. The deadline for registration is 2012 October 31. There are limited places so early registration is recommended.
