|Online Education and Prior Learning Assessment A Powerful Combination to Help Develop Degreed Workers||Course Code: 3 Return|
| Presenter: Scott Bates
Job Title: Director of Marketing
Company: Energy providers Coalition for Education (EPCE)
Description: It is well known within the nuclear industry that a large percentage of today’s nuclear workers will be eligible for retirement soon. There is newly standardized nuclear curriculum designed for local colleges to provide education to create a pool of new nuclear workers. Yet, many cannot attend a local college because of either physical distance or time constraints. Online education, which has become a mainstream education method, provides a solution for students to balance their studies with other obligations including work and family.
Recent data also shows that by leveraging Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) dramatically increases students’ degree completion and decreases the time to earn their credential. PLA college credit is regularly awarded for industry and military nuclear training. This combination can help nuclear employees earn a degree when they previously thought there was no opportunity to do so.

| Presenter: Dr. Jane LeClair, Chriss Miller & James Fromm
Job Title: Dean, School of Business and Technology, Senior Instructor, Nuclear Operations, Program Director
Company: Excelsior College
Description: Human performance, and the related role and consequences of performance error in plant events, has long been studied by the commercial nuclear industry, and those who work with the industry, to achieve ever higher levels of excellence. As the commercial nuclear industry has matured, a variety of techniques have been incorporated in operator and technician training to reduce the number and mitigate the consequences of human performance errors. Because these errors continue to occur, some with potential significant consequences, common sense and understanding indicate existing methods are not sufficient to the task and that other methods must necessarily be integrated into training processes. Returning to the basics for both job and task analysis and incorporating value and behavior based objectives is one method used by vocational and technical training organizations to address this issue. This presentation will examine the need for and use of affective domain objectives, as well as related metrics, which can augment existing methods used to reduce human performance errors.

Description: Whether training new H.P. Techs to perform radiation and contamination surveys, or training radiation workers in the proper use of protective clothing, simulation technology provides an effective tool to enhance training programs. To provide practical experience to trainees within safe training environments, a variety of simulation technologies have emerged over the years. These technologies offer some level of “realistic” instrument response to a perceived source of radiation or contamination. Recognizing the advantages and shortcomings of each of these simulation technologies, a new generation of simulation technology has been developed which integrates the best of these methods into a single solution.This breakout session will review lessons learned in the use of a variety of existing simulation technologies. These include remote control, chemical simulant, RF, and software based solutions.
The session will discuss how these technologies are best used to instill proper survey techniques in the classroom and to master skills and develop confidence in the field. The particular challenges associated with individual and team training, exercise scale, and instruction and assessment concerns will also be reviewed. An overview of the new integrated single solution will be provided along with hands-on use of the simulation equipment.

| Presenter: Tom VanWyen
Job Title: Director of Training
Company: Exelon Nuclear - Three Mile Island
Description: Too often in this industry, we lament about the herculean effort it takes to get ready for an Accreditation Team Visit (ATV).
