Standardized Curriculum

Let us help your college become certified by the nuclear community so that your students will graduate with a portable, industry-recognized credential.

In 2011, recognizing the immediate need for a large replacement nuclear workforce, RCNET worked with industry and nuclear agencies to create a nuclear unified curriculum program. This credential awarded to colleges by INPO verifies that a credentialed college teaches their program to the nuclear standards (ACAD 08-006) and has aligned with local industry.

Students graduating from credentialed colleges and having achieved an 80% or higher in all key courses are awarded an industry-recognized portable certificate.

Since 2011, RCNET has helped over 20 colleges obtain this certification resulting in over 1,5000 NUCP certificates awarded to nuclear technician graduates.

Additionally, RCNET has developed a host of curriculum resources mapped to the over 1,200 NUCP learning objectives which can be found below. Including:
