The BNIC will provide a broad introduction to the current nuclear industry by looking at how the industry has evolved over the past half century. The BNIB sets out the expectations of workers on nuclear sites in terms of health, safety and general approach. The two courses will be delivered at every nuclear site in the UK and will be available as an e learning package from the National Skills Academy for Nuclear web site, along with a third, site specific induction course. The course will form part of National Skills Academy for Nuclear nuclear’s skills passport. Paul Renshaw, People Services Director. “This is a positive step for NNL, exemplifying the important contribution we want to make to the nuclear skills agenda in the UK. As a National Lab, it is important for us to work with organisations like the National Skills Academy for Nuclear in order to help secure and maintain the skills base for a growing industry.”
