Central Institute for Continuing Education and Training
(CICET, Obninsk, Russia)
The Central Institute for Continuing Education and Training (CICE&T) is the leading training institution in the field of nuclear industry associated with the State Atomic Energy Corporation “Rosatom”. Nowadays CICE&T focuses its activity on the development of the series of courses for specialists of national nuclear infrastructure in newcomer countries. CICE&T offers teaching aids and instructional technologies for operational and maintenance staff, multimedia courses, software tools and other technologies involved in the nuclear knowledge management packages. CICE&T has branches in Saint-Petersburg (project management for NPP under construction), Yekaterinburg (fuel cycle technologies), and affiliated departments at 6 Russian NPPs: Balakovo NPP, Kalinin NPP, Leningradskaya NPP, Kurskaya NPP, Kola NPP, Novovoronezh NPP.
One of the most important objectives of CICE&T is to support the export of Russian nuclear technologies. At the 55th Session of the IAEA General Assembly, CICE&T signed the practical arrangements with the IAEA and JSC “Concern Rosenergoatom” on cooperation in training the specialists for nuclear infrastructure in newcoming countries. Along with the course development the new generation of English speaking instructors is grown to support global expansion of Russian nuclear technologies and training system. The planning horizon is up to 2015. CICE&T is accredited and holds a license for education provision. CICE&T offers programs for advanced training and programs for professional retraining as well.
