specific facility shift supervisor needs. For those facilities under DOE Order 5480.18A,
"Accreditation of Performance-Based Training For Category A Reactors and Nuclear
Facilities," the senior reactor operator position is included under the shift supervisor/shift
manager program, and the training content identified in this guide and on Attachment II-4 in
the Training Accreditation Program Manual (TAP 3), should be included in the training
program for the shift supervisor.
Full implementation of shift supervisor training program requires a long-term
commitment. Training activities should be carefully managed to produce effective results.
Training plans should be developed, organizations should be staffed with qualified
instructors, and sufficient controls should be applied to ensure delivery of an effective
Each facility should analyze its training needs to develop a facility-specific training
program. Analysis results should be used to establish learning objectives, test items,
instructional methods, and instructional settings. Performance measures used to evaluate
employee performance and assess training effectiveness can also be derived from the
Training programs should be evaluated on a continuous basis to determine the extent
to which established learning objectives are being accomplished. Evaluation results should
be used to improve training plans, facilities, programs, materials, and procedures. In
addition, it is important to implement a systematic method to update training-program
content, to incorporate facility modifications, operating experiences, procedure changes, and
changes in job requirements.
