Human resource development for the new NPP in Armenia
Armenia is the only country in the Caucasus region that has been operating nuclear power plants for over 30 years. Qualified specialists exist at the Armenia Nuclear Power Plant, the Armenian Nuclear Regulatory Authority, the Nuclear and Radiation Safety Centre, and other institutes, but further developments are needed to address emerging issues and challenges in view of the decision for developments of new nuclear unit(s) in Armenia. Processes and plans for assessment of needs, development of new training capacities for the new unit(s), and curriculum development at Armenian educational institutions are described.
