10:30 Improving Knowledge Transfer and Retention for Nuclear Newcomers

From fundamentals to operations training, there is a lot of material that must be absorbed by new nuclear candidates to prepare them to become industry professionals. The training materials in the nuclear power generation industry originate largely from when most the nuclear power plants were constructed in the United States in the 1970s and 1980s. In the meantime, today’s students—“digital natives”—are no longer “designed” for the educational system that is in place. L-3 MAPPS will discuss how today’s students are at odds with the industry’s teaching materials and what the company is doing about it.
