About This Course

Upon completion of this intermediate-level course, managers, engineers and program developers will have a better understanding of the major international Nuclear Quality Assurance Standards and how they relate and interact. also provides analysis of the areas of their agreement and differences.

Following an introduction to the ASME Section III Nuclear Power Code, the course offers an overview of the ASME NQA-1 Nuclear Quality Assurance Standard, the ISO 9001 Quality Management Standard, and the IAEA GS-R-3 Management Systems Standard. It also compares the NQA-1 Standard with the ISO 9001:2008 and the IAEA GS-R-3 Management Systems Safety Series Standard. The course also provides analysis of the areas of their agreement and differences.

This online, instructor-supported course is designed for engineers, managers and quality personnel who are or will be directly or indirectly involved in manufacturing, fabrication and examination of components or structures for nuclear power facilities. Participants are expected to have at least one year of experience in design, construction, quality assurance, or operation of nuclear facilities. They may also have a supporting-supplier role for nuclear power facilities and their components or development of management system integration of nuclear quality requirements across global boundaries.
