DOE-110DE - DOE Oversight Fundamentals

This basic-level eLearning course presents the fundamental concepts of Department of Energy safety oversight as stated in DOE P 226.1B, Department of Energy Oversight Policy and DOE O 226.1B, Implementation of Department of Energy Oversight Policy. The course prepares students for future oversight courses like DOE-120, DOE Oversight and Implementation and DOE-220, Assessment Techniques.

DOE-120 - DOE Oversight and Implementation

(FORMERLY SAF-384) DOE Oversight and Implementation: This intermediate-level course presents and tests a student’s ability to implement oversight activities to meet the requirements of DOE Order 226.1B, Implementation of the Department of Energy Oversight Policy. Order 226.1B establishes DOE requirements for assurance systems and processes established by DOE contractors and oversight programs performed by DOE line management and independent oversight organizations. The course incorporates lecture, discussion, and dynamic learning activities. RECOMMENDATIONS: Familiarity with DOE Order 226.1B, Implementation of Department of Energy Oversight Policy.

DOE-130 - Fundamentals of Performance Management

(FORMERLY SAF-386) This intermediate-level course is designed to teach students the basic knowledge and skills (with numerous applied exercises) necessary to successfully design, develop, implement, and utilize a performance management system, irrespective of organizational affiliation or specific mission.

DOE-140 - Developing Integrated Oversight Plans

This class is part of the oversight curriculum series; with focus on supervisors developing organizational-level integrated oversight plans (IOP). Students are given the opportunity to develop an organizational-level IOP that effectively utilizes staff resources while integrating contractor, site office, and headquarter inputs. The developed IOPS will reflect the appropriate level and mix of oversight. Students will be given credible examples and led through the process of developing and justifying IOPS that reflect an appropriate depth and rigor for the applied case study.

DOE-200DE - Assessments Fundamentals

This introductory course focuses on assessment terminology and basic assessor skills and techniques. It is a prerequisite to the instructor-led training given in DOE-215 and is part of the oversight curriculum track.

DOE-215 - Assessment Preparation and Application

This course is designed to provide students an opportunity to further develop or refresh their assessment skills. Given a defined scope and specific program information, students will develop an assessment plan (including criteria review approach documents) and perform an assessment of a simulated company. Students are mentored by instructors that fulfill the role of assessment team leaders and technical advisors. Students will be presented with tools and techniques for analyzing assessment data and documenting their assessment results. Although students work in teams, they are assigned individual program areas to ensure each individual has a unique experience.

PHY-128DE - Basic Survey Overview

This eLearning course familiarizes learners with Department of Energy (DOE) survey processes and procedures. It provides Federal and contractor personnel who have safeguards and security oversight responsibilities with an overview, and discusses the knowledge and skills essential for planning and conducting surveys and reporting survey results.

PHY-130 - Basic Survey

This basic course prepares personnel to participate and assist members of designated safeguards and security assessment teams, whether they be internal or external. The course includes instruction on the assessment process planning, conduct, and post-assessment activities and skills training, performance test planning, interview techniques, and report writing. NOTE: This course is NOT offered as a mobile training and is only taught at the NTC ISSTEC facility. The ISSTEC facility is designed to enable students to experience a hands-on approach to training.

VAP-335 - Fundamentals of Performance Testing

This baseline-level course presents a comprehensive overview of the performance testing process, with emphasis on understanding the identification of essential elements and assisting performance testers in the development of protocol documents and specific performance tests to validate what the VA analyst believes to be the correct values to determine system effectiveness by gathering the data from the performance test, then inputting the results in any of the several modeling tools currently available to determine if their estimates were correct. VAP-140 Vulnerability Assessment Fundamentals and PHY100DE, Physical Protection Systems Overview are recommended. It is also recommended the student be familiar with the use of VA modeling software such as ASSESS-ATLAS, Simajin, AVERT, etc. EQUIPMENT: Pocket calculator.

DOE-310 - Oversight Data Reporting and Analysis

The Oversight Data Analysis and Reporting course gives students the opportunity to learn various data analysis techniques to unique nuclear safety related data sets. The results of the data analysis can result in the identification of nuclear safety issues that are then reported and entered into an issues management program. The course will also teach students a methodology to report nuclear safety issues to both Federal and contractor managers.

DOE-320 - Causal Analysis and Corrective Action

The course outlines the basic principles, concepts, and processes the DOE managers and contractors can use in implementing the causal analysis and corrective action elements of an issues management system based on their specific needs as required by DOE O 226.1B, Implementation of Department of Energy Oversight Policy.
