ICT-based training in nuclear instrumentation in Algeria
The Atomic Energy Commission (COMENA) has taken some active steps for the adoption of Information and Communications Technology (ICT)-based training modules in the Maintenance of Nuclear Instrumentation (MNI). The overall objective of this programme is to establish a sustainable national capability to use the potential of ICT for training and education in nuclear science and applications. This article reviews a pilot experience launched from the telecentre of the Nuclear Research Center of Algiers (CRNA). It describes the organisational and material means for a good and successful training experience, the obstacles met, the challenges taken up and finally, some proposals for a better implementation of this training mode for nuclear instrumentation.
