Nuclear Site Safety Justification Course - ME809N
MOD and Defence Contractor personnel who occupy posts whose core task requires an understanding of the management, production, development or constraints imposed by nuclear safety cases for shore-based facilities.
The aim of NSSJC is to provide delegates with the knowledge and understanding of the Naval Nuclear Propulsion Programme (NNPP) and Nuclear Weapon Programme (NWP) site safety case processes, methodologies and constraints. Knowledge of the interface between the site safety case and the nuclear reactor plant/weapon safety case is fundamental to this understanding.

Comparison with other Safety Courses:
ME825N NSCWAC – Potential delegates for this course should have the equivalent of A Level mathematics or degree level education in a numerate subject.
ME809N NSSJC – Potential delegates should be aware of the similarities between the material covered in NWSC Module 4 and the NSSJC and not consider attending if they have recently undertaken NWSC Module 4. The NSSJC gives both an overview of safety justification and an in-depth resume of specialist subject areas in the NNPP (mostly delivered by outside speakers), and is therefore useful for new entrants and experienced people within the NNPP.
ME807N NWSC Module 4 – examinable – less technical than NSCWAC, but GCSE/HND level mathematics and the successful completion of the mathematics test at the start of Module 2 of the NWSC is assumed.
NTEC07 Nuclear Safety Case Development and ME 801 Nuclear Advanced Course: Advanced Nuclear Safety – post graduate level MSc material requiring first year engineering degree level mathematics and independent learning.
