Development of nuclear education standards

If we analyze the causes of severe accidents in the world nuclear industry, we find in most cases common root causes: project deficiency, human error. The fundamental remedy of these root causes is only possible through improvement of nuclear education. Development of the nuclear education standards for the nuclear industry staff and the certification system for teaching staff are proposed. Recommendations with mandatory for the nuclear industry staff disciplines, appropriate knowledge and skills were developed. Propositions for the principles and structure of the certification system for teaching staff are formulated. The risk of emergency situations and accidents in nuclear industry will be significantly reduced.
