The process of selection, training and qualification of personnel involved with NDA measurements is one of the quality assurance elements for an overall quality NDA measurement program.
This guide describes an approach to selection, qualification, and training of personnel that is to be used in conjunction with other NDA QA program elements. The selection, qualification and training processes can vary and this guide provides one such approach.
The qualification activities described in this guide assume that NDA personnel are already proficient in general facility operations and safety procedures. The training and activities that developed this proficiency are not covered in this guide.
This guide describes a basic approach and principles for the qualification of NDA professionals and technical specialists and operators. A different approach may be adopted by the management organization based on its particular organization and facility specifics. However, if a variation of the approach of this guide is applied, the resulting selection, training, and qualification programs must meet the requirements of the facility quality assurance program and should provide all the applicable functions of Section 4.
This guide may be used as an aid in the preparation of a Training Implementation Plan (TIP) for the Transuranic Waste Characterization Program (TWCP). Requirements for TWCP training include but are not limited to: 10 CFR 830.120, DOE Order 5480.20A, DOE QAPD CAO-94-1012, TWCP-QAPP CAO-94-1010, TWCP-QAPjP and the TUM.View Less
