RCC-M Fundamentals for Nuclear Manufacturers

This course is aimed at supply chain vendors who need to better understand the RCC-M standard.

RCC-M is the French standard for the design and construction of pressurised equipment relating to the nuclear island of pressurised water reactor power plants. It has been upgraded several times since the issue of the first version of the standard in 1981, and at the end of 2007 RCC-M underwent a major upgrade.

This course has been developed with and will be delivered by Bureau Veritas (BV) part of the Skills Academy’s High Quality Provider Network. BV are experts in RCC-M both in the UK, France and other parts of the world.

This is an AFCEN Approved Course - AFCEN is the French Association for the rules governing the Design, Construction and Operating Supervision of the Equipment Items for Electro Nuclear Boilers.

Who will benefit?
Engineers, quality managers and/or other key personnel from companies that are currently supplying, or seeking to supply, the nuclear new build sector. 

The course is delivered as an overview of the full RCC-M standard.  As such it is fast-paced and covers a lot of detail, which is essential knowledge as a first base to more in depth training and practical use of the code.
