Why certify?

Looking at other industry sectors, each sector has professional standards and required certifications... so

why not in the nuclear industry?

EL HADJ Islam

Engineer, Tunisian Power and Gas, Tunisia.
Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) with Specialisation in Science and Engineering for Nuclear Security.

"As a nuclear power engineer with a focus on the nuclear safety side of NPPs and emergency preparedness, I have always wondered about the interface between nuclear safety and nuclear security. Why is it that we don’t learn or study nuclear security but continue to place such stress on nuclear safety? Thanks to the WINS Academy programme, I found that nuclear security is the “shy hidden twin sister” of nuclear safety that is only now being recognized to be as important as it is. 
I wish to encourage my peers to take this course."

Alatrash Yazan

Safety, Security and Licencing division, Research and Training Reactor, Jordan
Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) with Specialisation in Science and Engineering for Nuclear Security.

"I highly recommend every professional working in the nuclear field to be enrolled in the WINS academy programme. The knowledge and experience I found here can’t be found somewhere else in such well-organized and summarized way. Taking this program will surely change your understanding and attitude towards nuclear security. I personally believe there is no better way to totally understand nuclear security and the rules of the stakeholders responsible for it than taking the WINS academy programme courses."
