The first wave of managers and engineers in non-ops on a new site under construction must be trained as soon as possible to be ready for commissioning. EDF proposes this 20-week training program on its Campuses. The trainees will be able, while following the course, to make on-site training on the contiguous nuclear power plants.

The training goes as follows:

  • International training for non-operation engineers - Process knowledge: general overview of the operation of a nuclear power plant, including operating on Mistral simulator.
  • International training for non-operation engineers - Engineering knowledge: legal framework and strategic framing service of maintenance.

Course information:
