Vienna, 2 July 2022 (TDI): International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has collaborated with the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) to launch an E-learning course.

It is specifically for young nuclear professionals in Latin America and the Caribbean. The course offers programs related to operations, strategic management, and financing of nuclear technology.

The programs offered in the course are completely free so they are open to all people. People who are interested in the subject of strategic and business planning in the nuclear field may apply.

Virtual Learning Programmes

IAEA and the ANL have designed the course in ten modules. Furthermore, the modules contain comprehensive twenty-three lectures in total.

Each lecture is explained by professionals working in the IAEA and ANL. The lectures will begin by teaching the fundamental principles of strategic planning, understanding stakeholder engagement, and financial management of development programs.

Moreover, the course also contains guest lectures from the Donald C. Cook Nuclear Power Plant and human development firms. The course aims to equip young people to meet the needs of today and the future.

Sustainability through E-learning

IAEA has implemented training courses through technical cooperation programs in National Nuclear Institutions (NNIs). However, this new E-learning program offered by IAEA aim toward the sustainability of institutions.

Though calculating the suitability of the programs is difficult, the main goal is to sustainably deliver nuclear applications. One of the lectures is also about sustainability planning and business continuity.

IAEA and ANL are adamant to promote new and improved strategies that will contribute to sustainable learning in the field of science and nuclear technology.

Eventually, IAEA and ANL even plan to collaborate with universities, public sectors, and industries.
