COMMUNICATING ABOUT NUCLEAR TECHNOLOGY
Vienna, August 2010
The Basic Professional Training Course on Nuclear Safety (BPTC) is intended to provide a broad overview of all the safety concepts and their application to nuclear power plants and research reactors design and operation. Its nature and scope are primarily oriented to junior professionals recently involved in nuclear safety-related activities. It is also appropriate for highly specialized professionals who lack a broader view of nuclear safety.

The expected audience for this training consists of designated, certified or licensed reactor operators, operator trainees and regulators with some experience in nuclear reactor facilities and operations. The material is specifically directed at TRIGA fuelled reactor facilities and should only be used as information by other facilities. The unique characteristics of the TRIGA fuel (such as pulsing capabilities) are not generally applicable to other fuels (i.e. MTR reactors).
