Nuclear Uniform Curriculum Program

What is the Nuclear Uniform Curriculum Program?

The Nuclear Uniform Curriculum Program consists of a three-step approach to 1) quantify the need, 2) define the curriculum, and 3) Implement the right number of programs in each region. The intent is that graduates could be waived or exempted from portions of required initial training. Click here for more information on the Nuclear Uniform Curriculum Program.
