Course Background

This new offering of the 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 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, Jason Donev and Jeremy Whitlock.  It will consist of three modules, and will include Q&A and a discussion of each module’s relevance to public outreach:

  • Energy and the Nuclear Fuel Cycle
  • Facts, Myths, and Historical Review of the Nuclear Industry
  • Health Risks of Radiation
