11. Decommissioning Training 12. Decommissioning Training

  • Share the experience and knowledge of the industry with others new to the field focus on lessons learned
  • Integrated approach was chosen using industry experienced contractors and ANL staff presenting classroom fundamentals and project case studies
  • After 12+ years (over 50 sessions) we have nearly 1300 graduates from over 40 countries
  • www.dd.anl.gov/ddtraining/
