PWR Chemistry Advanced

Advanced course for managers and engineers | taught by A.N.T. International

Course description


The course comprises four technical areas: Structural Material Degradation, Fuel Materials, Fuel Thermal-Hydraulic and Coolant Chemistry. The principal focus of this course, Coolant Chemistry,  covers both primary and secondary side. Background information is  provided on fuel and degradation of plant materials because the primary  coolant chemistry affects fuel performance, but is generally targeted  towards minimizing corrosion of structural materials and minimizing the  buildup of plant activity. Information is provided on the nuclear and  thermal-hydraulic behavior of fuel assemblies because irradiation and  temperature are primary factors in the behavior of fuel materials.

This  course involves reading technical reports, watching webinars and  participating in online assessments (tests). To pass the tests you need  to complete it with at least 70% correct answers. You have one hour (60  minutes) to finish the exam. If you fail to reach the 70% you may redo  the test (up to 3 times). Once you have passed the exam you have  completed this course. Well done! You will automatically receive an email with your certificate that you can print or share on social media including LinkedIn. If you need a printed certificate, please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will send it to you via regular mail. You reach us at

The course material, including the online content, can be accessed at times convenient for practicing Engineers and Managers.

The PowerPoint-presentations are available for download on almost all lectures. You will find them just before the lecture starts. (Some presentations are only partial. We apologize for any inconvenience.)

Please note that these PowerPoint-presentations are the actual file from the seminar that has been recorded. Therefore, there may occur spelling errors and/or less perfect pictures or slides. As the presentations are the expert’s own material we have not edited them before making these lectures available online.
