Intended Audience:

DOE and contractor personnel responsible for or directly involved in the implementation of DOE O

435.1, Radioactive Waste Management.

Course Description:

In July 1999, the Department of Energy (DOE) issued a revised Directive on managing radioactive waste. DOE Order 435.1, Radioactive Waste Management, with its associated Manual and Guidance documents, reflect advances in radioactive waste management practices and changes within the Department since DOE Order 5820.2A was issued in 1988.

Course that focuses on the roles, responsibilities, and requirements specified in DOE O 435.1. The course provides detailed instruction on the requirements of the revised Order, Manual, and Implementation Guide; outlines key changes; introduces compliance strategies; and provides opportunities for participants to apply the key requirements through student exercises.

The primary goal of this training is to support implementation of the requirements in DOE O 435.1. This includes application of principle mechanisms specified in the Order - the Radioactive Waste Management Basis, Integrated Safety Management System, and use of a performance-based approach.

The course consists of the five modules listed below:

-          -          Introduction, Overview, and Goals

-          -          Low-Level Waste

-          -          Low-Level Waste Disposal

-          -          Transuranic Waste

-          -          High-Level Waste

The course modules are integrated to provide comprehensive coverage and minimize redundancy. Consequently, participation in all modules is necessary, in order to adequately complete the course. The course includes a final comprehensive exam. Participants will receive 2.4 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for completion of this course.

PREREQUISITIES: None. Suggested Preparation - working level knowledge of the technical aspects of radioactive waste management and disposal, as well as how a facility's Authorization Basis impacts and supports its design and operational requirements.
