Directed Student Modules presented in an updated electronic format include:

  • Clear learning objectives

  • Brief, focused text on critical points

  • Short videos covering material, history, and insights 

  • Embedded links to more specific information

  • Periodic knowledge checks

  • Experienced mentors to discuss module and exam results

"Foundational Training bridges the knowledge gap and ensures that the fundamentals are passed on to the next generation of nuclear professionals."
