BWR Nuclear Fuel Engineering

For BWR Fuel Engineers and Technical Managers | taught by A.N.T. International

Course description


This course gives an overview of topics relevant to BWR Fuel Engineers and Technical Managers. The overview provides background information necessary to understand fuel and material behaviour as related to practical design, operational, reliability and safety issues.

The course covers the entire lifespan of fuel assemblies from manufacturing, mechanical, T-H and nuclear design as well as performance during operation, design basis accidents and post-irradiation interim dry storage.

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
