The National Academy for Nuclear Training (NANT) Accreditation Board voted last week to renew the accreditation of Davis-Besse’s Operations training programs for an additional six years. The board met with Davis-Besse representatives at the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) offices in Atlanta and informed FirstEnergy Solutions President and CEO John Judge of its decision.
During the last August’s Accreditation Team Visit (ATV), the NANT Accreditation Team conducted an extensive evaluation of Davis-Besse’s Operations training programs to verify the programs met industry standards. At last week’s meeting, the Davis-Besse team discussed results of the ATV, the Accreditation Self-Evaluation Report (ASER), presented additional information about the site’s training programs and responded to follow-up questions from the five-member board. The programs reviewed included training for non-licensed Operators, Reactor Operators, Senior Reactor Operators, Shift Managers, Shift Engineers, and Operator Requalification.
Congratulations Steve Betts, Larry Gentry, and Christine McKim on all of your hard work!!!
