Development of Curricula for Nuclear Radiation Protection, Nuclear Instrumentation, and Nuclear Materials Processing Technologies. Final Report.
Hull, Daniel M.
A study was conducted to assist two-year postsecondary educational institutions in providing technical specialty courses for preparing nuclear technicians. As a result of project activities, curricula have been developed for five categories of nuclear technicians and operators: (1) radiation protection technician, (2) nuclear instrumentation and control technician, (3) nuclear materials processing technician, (4) nuclear quality assurance/quality control technician, and (5) nuclear reactor (plant) operator trainee. The total Nuclear Technology Series consists of 236 instructional modules for 35 technical specialty courses. In addition, program planning guides were developed for each of the curriculum areas. (Appended material includes curriculum outlines, course descriptions and module objectives for Nuclear Radiation Production, Nuclear Instrumentation and Control, and Nuclear Materials Processing Technologies.)
