What is A.N.T. International

Online Education Programme?

The interest is dramatically increasing of our unique Online Education courses in the Nuclear Industry areas of:

  • Nuclear Fuel
  • Coolant Chemistry/Corrosion
  • Structural Material Degradation
  • Thermal Hydraulics and Neutronics
  • Interim/Final Storage of Spent Nuclear Fuel/Nuclear Waste

Most likely, this is a consequence of the renewed interest to build new nuclear power plants in the world. A large number of engineers needs to be educated and the A.N.T. International Online Education courses are the perfect tool to fill this need. Today staff with knowledge ranging from no nuclear experience to expert level from more than 30 companies/organisations in 11 countries are taking one or several Online Education courses. A participant can either just take one course of a specific interest or participate in a several years education programme consisting of several courses in a specific order dependant on the interest and background of the participant (see bottom of this page). The course material is online based and can be accessed at times convenient for practicing engineers and managers. The online approach provides the freedom to complete the course at each individual´s pace. After each course has been completed a certificate is issued.

Who is the programme suited for?

Nuclear engineers/managers as well as students with knowledge ranging from no nuclear experience to expert level. Our clients work for utilities, regulators, fuel/reactor vendors, nuclear laboratories and experimental reactors.

Why online?

The online approach provides the freedom to complete the course at each individual´s pace which is highly appreciated by busy professionals and nuclear engineers. Since the training takes place online it is highly cost effective for you as a customer, while still providing a required qualification with up to date nuclear training.

Currently 150+ nuclear engineers/managers/students worldwide are taking an A.N.T. International Online course from 30 different companies/organizations/universities such as Utilities, Regulators, Laboratories, Reactor/Fuel Vendors, Engineering Organizations and Universities, from 11 different countries”. The average rating/from 1-5, 5 being the highest) from the Online Education participants is 4.2.

Customer feedback

Dr. Lustolde Martínez Laorden
Product Engineering
ENUSA, Spain

Thanks to an ANT INTERNATIONAL specific course, I had my first academic contact with the metallurgy of zirconium alloys in which the most relevant aspects of the alloys used in the fuel cladding were described. This course allowed me to get an in-depth understanding of the behavior of zirconium alloys under operation and accidental conditions such as mechanical behavior, irradiation effects or corrosion. Other recent acquisitions of A.N.T. International Online Education Courses were related to the characterization of irradiated materials in hot cells or a complete description of all related aspects of the PWR nuclear fuels. All of them perfectly met ENUSA’s requirements and those of our customers. Several young engineers in ENUSA are continuously improving their skills taking advantage of the knowledge gathered with A.N.T. International excellent Online Education Courses.

Combining 20 years of nuclear power chemical operation experience with A.N.T. Internationals’ online training has given me a deeper and broader understanding of how chemistry affects/interacts with the fuel, radiation protection and structural materials. I will greatly benefit from this knowledge provided by A.N.T. International in my current role. Since the courses are online-based, I have been able to participate when it fits my agenda. The presentations are educational with easy understanding slides presented by expertise within the area and it is e.g. easy to pause the course to look a little more closely at some slides or to immerse yourself in the accompanying reports that are included in many of the courses.

I highly recommend A.N.T. Internationals’ courses. The introduction courses are suitable for the engineer with a little less experiences and the advanced courses  suits senior engineers, supervisors and others with more experience in the area.

The online education satisfied the continuous improvement requirements for a dozen colleagues from our department at different proficiency levels. Some of us took the course as a basic level stepping stone for sub sequent role-specific training. Others used advanced/expert level courses to enjoy the knowledge transferring from renounced maestro of respective fields. As a supplementation we recommend examining the current ZIRAT annual report for latest progress.

Covid-19 lockdown led to many restrictions whilst opening the opportunity for one to better one’s technical apprehension. The convenience of education at one’s own ease prompted a proposal and later a purchase order for 20 different A.N.T. International courses. The proposal satisfied a dozen or so colleagues’ continuous improvement requirements in thermal hydraulic, fuel material, structural material degradation and coolant chemistry & corrosion technical areas. Various subjects in each technical areas, with proficiency levels ranging from basic to expert, provide coverage impressive in terms of both breadth and profundity.
