This course is designed for nuclear power plant system and design engineers, I&C supervisors and technicians, as well as corporate engineering and management. Personnel involved with Nuclear Instrumentation Systems, Radiation Monitors, and other sensitive and/ or critical plant equipment will find this course the most beneficial.


The course will be held at the Hyatt Regency Clearwater (301 South Gulfview Blvd, Clearwater, Florida, 33767) from Tuesday January 30th through Thursday February 1st, 2018.


This three-day technical training will cover the general methods and technologies for performing cable testing in a nuclear power plant. These technologies have applications for routine condition monitoring assessments, emergent troubleshooting of cables, connectors, and end devices, as well as developing the foundation for a cable aging management program.

The course will focus on promoting an understanding of the cable testing technologies and conveying operating experience during troubleshooting of nuclear instrumentation systems, radiation monitors, thermocouples, and other inherently sensitive plant systems. These efforts will be accomplished through class lectures as well as hands-on demonstrations of equipment and techniques as applied to the testing of nuclear power plant cables.


The course modules are taught by senior AMS engineers and have between 10 and 30 years of experience and have worked in nuclear power plants worldwide.
