If you work in the nuclear sector, then develop the skills you need to be recognised as a professional in nuclear security management. We produce professionals who have mastered the science, art and engineering of effective nuclear security management, gaining the practical skills they need for their workplace. You'll become one of the senior decision-makers of the future nuclear industry and regulation around the world.
Our course has been recognised by the World Institute for Nuclear Security (WINS) Academy as compliant with international consensus standards of best practice, and we are working towards recognition for contributing to the achievement of Chartered Security Professional (CSyP) status. If you want to get ahead in your workplace, then our course will continue your professional development to ensure a successful career.
This part-time course will enable you to earn while you learn, taking place over 2 years. Each module only takes one week of classroom / laboratory study together with 5 weeks study in the workplace, including an assessment. We offer prompt feedback on your work to enable you to shape your skills as well as your theoretical knowledge.
The course will use an innovative 'virtual learning community' approach to study real situations without creating security constraints. This material will support more traditional lecture materials, and group seminars as well as small group tutorials. All materials will be provided online for private study at any convenient time, in any time zone. Students are expected to establish and maintain an electronic portfolio of their studies, and appropriate workplace material as evidence of their professional development as part of their evidence for the Security Institute.
We have worked closely with the nuclear industry, non-nuclear industries and regulators. The syllabus has been based on the International Atomic Energy Agency (http://www.iaea.org) and World Institute for Nuclear Security (http://www.wins.org) syllabuses for nuclear security management education to ensure it both represents international best practice and is applicable in any part of the world.
