RCNET ACAD 08-006 Crosswalk: 5.1.1 Maintenance Personnel - Power Plant Fundamentals

Program Description:
This material was published by the Regional Center for Nuclear Education and Training (RCNET) as part of a comprehensive crosswalk that links objectives of ACAD 08-006 with GP Strategies ABC Material, NUCP Surveyed Material, NANTeL resources, EPRI resources, web resources, and published material available to all RCNET partners. These accredited utility training programs are based off training and qualification guidelines (ACADs) published by the National Academy for Nuclear Training. 

ACAD 08-006 is the Uniform Curriculum Guide for Nuclear Power Plant Technician, Maintenance, and Nonlicensed Operations Personnel Associate Degree Programs and includes five main curriculum areas: Core Curriculum, Discipline-Specific Curriculum for Nonlicensed Operators, Discipline-Specific Curriculum for Radiological Protection Technicians, Discipline-Specific for Chemistry Technicians, and Discipline Specific for Maintenance Personnel. 

This Power Plant Fundamentals section of the Discipline-Specific Curriculum for Maintenance Personnel (ACAD 08-006 5.1.1) covers basic power plant topics such as: fire detection and prevention systems, radiological environmental monitoring, digital feedwater control systems, power sources, electrical components, nuclear plant systems, additional safety topics, and more.

Documents associated with ACAD 08-006 5.1.1 include 12 PowerPoint presentations and five documents of curriculum information, lesson plans, and instructor notes.

For orientation purposes FireDetectionandProtectionInstructorNotes.pdf is included as a separate attachment and offers a sample of the type of material included in this curriculum. 

Below is a list of the files contained within the .zip attachment. The size of each file is included in parenthesis.
