RECOMMENDATIONS FOR QUALIFICATIONS OF ENGINEERING PERSONNEL OF NUCLEAR POWERED SHIPS

The report presents summary recommendations, based on task analysis, concerning training and other qualification requirements appropriate for personnel to serve on future new commercial nuclear ships. Training content and type (classroom, shoreside practical/simulation, onboard) are recommended for 12 personnel functional areas. The study described in this report is seen as an initial step in the process of developing marine nuclear personnel requirements. Pertinent existing standards and legal requirements are taken into account in the recommendations; however, the need for regulatory guidelines specific to the Merchant Marine environment is identified. The task data presented offer a basis for specific training curriculum development once the regulatory guidelines are defined. In addition to the task data and summary recommendations, the report is a compendium of reference materials including description of the design proposals for new nuclear commercial ships; discussion of nuclear hazards; description of existing standards and legal requirements; and summaries of nuclear personnel requirements for the utilities, the U. S. Navy, and on the prototype NS SAVANNAH.
