ANT International provides custom-tailored Online Educational Programmes and courses. We offer these services within the areas of Fuel Material, Structural Material Degradation and Coolant Chemistry & Corrosion. Our online educations are all taught by the Experts that developed the current nuclear industry.
The custom-tailored course or program may address issues relevant for your organisation. It may hold literature for reading, or be more based per online lectures. Tests can be set up after the organisations specific demands. All material, including both literature and online lectures, can be accessed at times convenient for practicing engineers and managers and also be downloaded to a local computer.

Below we offer an outline of available areas and topics. More topics will become available in 2018. If you are in search of any specific topics not listed here, please contact us.
