RCNET ACAD 08-006 Crosswalk: 5.2 Maintenance Personnel - Mechanical Maintenance Technicians

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 Mechanical Maintenance Technicians section of the Discipline-Specific Curriculum for Maintenance Personnel (ACAD 08-006 5.2) covers "...the component types and characteristics, common failure mechanisms, and operating principles of plant components (generic training on power plant machinery/equipment will be followed by plant-specific-training and qualification)."

Documents associated with ACAD 08-006 5.2 include 18 PowerPoint presentations and eight documents of curriculum information, lesson plans, and instructor notes.

This material covers, more specifically: auxiliary feedwater systems, waste water systems, fire detection and protection, boilers and thermic fluid heaters, chemistry control, condensate systems, and more.

For orientation purposes Condensate_and_Feedwater_Systems_Instructor_Notes.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.
