This hands-on program prepares participants to test and certify systems containing HEPA filtration and gas adsorption systems for nuclear and non-nuclear applications.
Participants learn the latest regulatory requirements for nuclear air cleaning, develop an understanding of filtration theory, and gain the experience they need to maintain air purity with a comprehensive filter system.
This program offers knowledge and essential hands-on training that will provide you with the experience and knowledge you need to meet the daily challenges of working with nuclear technology.
In addition to ventilation, the program also includes wide-ranging nuclear and non-nuclear topics relevant to biotechnology, clean rooms, health care, the military and commercial utilities.
Hands-on Laboratory Sessions
Participants benefit from interactive laboratory sessions in which they apply the theories learned in class, gain experience operating a variety of testing equipment, and participate in small group discussions focusing on the practical challenges and remedies in working with nuclear-filtration systems.
This dynamic curriculum is designed to allow participants to practice the knowledge and skills they need to implement, enhance, or certify nuclear air-filtration systems. In addition to presenting theory and frameworks, the program requires that participants apply theories in hands-on interactive laboratory exercises and discuss issues during laboratory breakout groups with peers facing similar challenges.
