Wins Members | Why Certify

Why certify?

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

why not in the nuclear industry?

It's important to integrate security into my work schedule. There is no way i can work safely...

if I am not secure.

Liu Leo

Supply Chain Director, AREVA Asia, China.
Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) with Specialisation in Nuclear Security for Executive Management.

"With the WINS Academy Elective for Executive Managers, I learned a lot. Surely security is not one subject that can be isolated. Security is not only guards and guns, it shall always be considered part of an integrated security programme for business success. Taking the Elective course and getting the certification will surely benefit our career, but most importantly it helps us better contribute to our organisations’ daily operations and communications. I recommend that all professionals in the Nuclear Industry register for the programme."


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."
