This course is the complete and full course combining all our courses on Material Introduction. It both holds the introductory sections as well as information about both BWR and PWR.
The objective of the course is to provide Engineers/Managers with the necessary background information to understand more complicated plant corrosion and metallurgical information. Not only presently inexperienced Engineers working on structural materials but also Plant chemists, Engineers working on nuclear fuel, as well as high level Managers could benefit from this course. The course involves watching recorded lectures and taking a final online exam (test). You may do your studies at any time or pace convenient for you.
When you have watched all the lectures you will be able to take the course exam. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
