SHIFT SUPERVISOR INITIAL-TRAINING
This appendix provides lesson specifications for the shift supervisor initial-training
program. These lesson specifications should be used in conjunction with the topical subjects
discussed in the Initial Training section of this guide to develop an initial-training program.
The learning objectives on which the training is based address higher-order knowledge and
abilities. Because of this, the training objectives should be modified to be consistent with
facility-specific philosophy and values.
These lesson specifications and the topics described in the Initial Training section
provide a framework with which the training department can use to enhance or develop
facility training materials. These lesson specifications is not intended to limit facility-specific
development of initial-training materials. Instead, the lesson specifications provide the
learning objectives and suggested activities on which to develop instructional materials and
evaluation methods. The suggested learning activities in the lesson specifications are one
method for presenting appropriate shift supervisor training and, as such, should be reviewed
and modified as needed to meet the needs of line management.
Learning activities for shift supervisors should maximize the experiential learning
process (i.e., active trainee participation and internalization) and minimize use of lectures.
The learning activities may be conducted and documented through the use of any or all of the
Discussion outlines or checklists
On-the-job interaction with appropriate persons in the nuclear organization

The learning objectives in each lesson specification have conditions for performance
(or are implied as being "from memory") and action statements. Learning objective
standards should be added or modified as needed to conform to the performance standards at
the facility and the level of performance expected from the trainee. Often, and especially for
