This course forms Module 5 of the wider CONP (Certificate of Nuclear Professionalism) – delivered in partnership with the National Skills Academy Nuclear (NSAN) and the Open University.

What is it about?

2020 Business Insight project management training courses and qualificationsThis course, which has been accredited by The Association for Project Management (APM) and The Project Management Institute (PMI) aims to provide a forum for Project Managers and members of project teams in the Nuclear Industry to gain exposure to Best Practice in Project Management methodology centred on a familiar environment – Decommissioning and New Build projects.

Using the professional standard of the ‘Body of Knowledge’ as the basis for the programme topics, the topics are addressed by demonstrating best practices and applying these to a relevant nuclear simulation case study. The application of the learning is better absorbed because of the familiarity of the context being covered.

The Nuclear specific ‘Project Management Professional Programme’ offers a choice of simulation case studies. The first encompasses a typical nuclear “decommissioning” project and the activities and considerations, or a case study focussing on a “new build” project and the challenges and activities involved. Each case study delves into project requirements from concept stage through to closeout, ensuring its relevance for course participants in their place of learning and in the workplace.
