Nuclear Safety Training Program

The courses are designed to complement the DOE Technical Qualification Program and its associated DOE safety-related Qualification Standards. The mission of the NSTP is to foster a technically capable DOE workforce from a safety perspective, by recruiting, training, and retaining qualified safety professionals.

Safeguards and Security

The goal of the Safeguards and Security (S&S) Training Program is to train DOE Federal and contractor employees in the protection of those security interests whose loss, theft, compromise, or unauthorized use would seriously affect national security, DOE programs, the environment, or the health and safety of employees or the public.

Protective Force Training Department

The NTC provides training to DOE and contractor Protective Force personnel who are involved in protecting DOE's vital national assets. Courses offered range from introductory to instructor-level. PFTD training at the NTC is conducted at the NTC Live Fire Range (LFR), at the Integrated Safety and Security Training and Evaluation Complex (ISSTEC), and via distance learning. Using mobile training teams (MTTs), the PFTD is also capable of conducting training at most field locations across the complex.

Management and Instructional Training

Management and Instructional Training courses are intended for personnel who serve as managers, supervisors, instructors, and curriculum developers. Courses offered provide direct assistance to instructional personnel involved with the analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation of training.

Learning Management System (LMS)

The new NTC LMS is hosted on site, which allows NTC staff to provide greater customer service and faster response times to users requesting account access, record management, and processing of training requests.

Training Resources

Distance Learning: The NTC will be increasing not just the availability of the LMS, but also its flexibility by implementing blended learning in a wider range of courses.

Mobile Training Teams (MTTs): If a site has a large number of students needing a particular course, the site may request that the NTC deliver the course on site.


Students can initiate an NTC course enrollment request by logging into the NTC LMS and selecting a session for enrollment.
