4.2 Staff Assignment Training
Following completion of the first module, initial training, and prior to entering the
facility-specific training program, technical staff personnel new to nuclear facilities should be
assigned to the department for which they were hired. This period generally should be
devoted to on-the-job training with emphasis placed on familiarizing the individual with job
responsibilities. Guidelines should be provided to ensure that key elements of the job are
addressed during this training phase.
Additionally, it is recommended that the individual be temporarily assigned to work with other
departments (such as shift assignments with maintenance and operations) to develop some
knowledge of overall facility operation and interdepartmental relationships. Productive work
assignments should be tasks for which the individual is qualified.
