NTI Nuclear Training


Commercial Grade Dedication – This three-day course is designed to provide a better understanding of how Commercial Grade Dedication is applied in order to meet NQA-1 requirements. It is based on Revision 1 to EPRI NP-5652 and TR-102260 and covers important definitions, regulations/guidances, commercial grade dedication process, CFSI, Part 21s, and practical exercises in commercial grade dedication.


Cyber Security – This half-day seminar provides an overview of nuclear industry cyber security requirements and guidance. Participants will gain an understanding of the background of licensee cyber security requirements and expected impacts on the nuclear supply chain.


Excellence in Human Performance – The course’s ultimate goal is to avoid incidents caused by human error. It starts with fundamental principles of human performance, by first admitting fallibility and vulnerability as inherent in the human condition. Different modes of human performance and their modes of failure or error are studied.


Equipment and Seismic Qualification – This 4-day course gives a better understand equipment and seismic qualification requirements, methods of compliance, validation of results, & proper documentation techniques.


ISO Transition Course and Assessment (Introduction to ISO 9001:2015) – This two day training course is designed to help businesses gain understanding of the changes created in the recently released ISO 9001:2015 standard, and how these changes could effect the organization’s quality management system. Additionally, this class can teach and help prepare companies to meet the ISO standards.


NQA-1 Lead Auditor Training – This nuclear training course is designed to provide an overview of Nuclear Lead Auditor requirements stated in 10CFR50 Appendix B and ASME NQA-1.  This is provided through direct classroom instruction of Nuclear Lead Auditor requirements, shared experiences illustrated by instructors and nuclear industry examples and history as it relates to becoming a Nuclear Lead Auditor.


Nuclear Receipt Inspection – This course covers all aspects of Nuclear Receipt Inspection, including codes and standards, overview of commercial grade dedication, nuclear receipt inspection techniques, CFSI, non-conformity reporting, statistics and sampling techniques, and practical examples and exercises.


PMP – Practical Application of Project Management – The nuclear regulatory requirements are unique for each safety related project. In order to successfully execute and complete nuclear projects, an effective project manager must be able to understand and evaluate all of the applicable requirements during the planning phase. This includes the scope, quality, schedule and budgets of the project. Our specialized training includes the Project Management body of knowledge and a supplemental session for understanding NQA-1 and the new guideline EPRI 5652 rev-1 as it applies to project management processes.


Software Dedication  The Software Dedication Training examines the requirements and guidance available for using commercial grade computer programs and software services at nuclear facilities.


Understanding and Implementing ASME NQA-1 – The overall objective of this three day training course is for students to gain a working knowledge of the ASME NQA-1 standard for Quality Assurance Requirements for Nuclear Facility Applications (QA). Participants will be introduced to the history, structure, and content of NQA- 1. The course looks at acceptable methods for implementing an effective NQA-1 within various regulatory environments. Special topics of interest to the nuclear industry will be discussed and current practices examined. These include commercial grade dedication, software QA, and use of relevant Subparts.
