The primary driver behind the Safeguards and Security (S&S) 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 facilities are operated in a safe and secure 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 S&S program-specific Qualification Standard includes the following:

  • Information Security
  • Nuclear Material Control and Accountability
  • Personnel Security
  • Physical Security
  • Protective Force
  • Vulnerability Assessment/Security Risk Assessment
