The primary driver behind the Safety Training Program is the Technical Qualification Program (TQP). The objectives of this program are as follows:

  • Identify the competencies that employees must possess to ensure DOE defense nuclear facilities are operated in a safe manner.
  • Establish a program that clearly identifies and documents the process used to demonstrate employee technical competence.
  • Ensure that employees maintain their technical competencies.
  • Maintain a cycle of continuous performance improvement through structured individualized training and development programs.

The TQP currently features the safety-related qualification standards listed below. The TQP FAQs include the following:
