Note: There is no pre-requisite for this course. Even if you did not take Part 1 of the course in 2020 November, there is no problem, you can still register for this offering.
The CNS CANDU Technology and Safety Course, held for the last many years in a physical setting over 3 days in March, has had to be cancelled/postponed to 2022 March on account of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In order to provide a partial replacement for the full course, an on-line course is being organized, offered over a number of days separated in time. The first slice took place on 2020 November 13, and the second slice will now be offered on two half-days, 2021 March 22 and 23, from 8 am to 11:30 am (Toronto local time).
This on-line offering will have a small number of presentations on the technology of CANDU reactors, on:
- CANDU fuel management and operation
- Detectors for CANDU safe operation,
- Nuclear Steam Supply System (NSSS) and BOP, and
- Reactor and plant control
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. Come broaden your nuclear knowledge beyond your specific area of work and your own area of expertise.
