RCNET ACAD 08-006 Crosswalk: 5.1.2 Maintenance Personnel - Plant Systems and Components Knowledge

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 Plant Systems and Components Knowledge of the Discipline-Specific Curriculum for Maintenance Personnel (ACAD 08-006 5.1.2) covers plant system topics such as: radiation; foreign material exclusion; NRC Regulations Title 10, CFR; troubleshooting; additional topics related to safety; and more. 

Documents associated with ACAD 08-006 5.1.2 include 22 PowerPoint presentations and two documents with curriculum information.

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