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.

MacArthur Eric

Adjunct professor, Canadian Forces College, Canada.
Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) with Specialisation in Nuclear Security for Executive Management.

"I do not have a background in the nuclear industry, so the WINS Academy Foundation and Executive Manager modules have provided a significant educational experience that enhances my role as a consultant in planning processes. I am familiar with the positive and negative aspects of web-delivered distance learning, so I was pleased to learn that the WINS Academy programme is informative, well-designed, user-friendly and highly effective. Everything worked perfectly, including the examination process. The WINS Academy staff are highly professional and approachable."

Kivinen Jussi

Service Manager, Barona Group Oy, Finland.
Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) with Specialisation in Nuclear Security for Executive Management.

"In Finland, we have a pretty good network and numerous cooperation opportunities between the private security sector, nuclear facilities and different authorities. We also have a high quality education system. One thing is missing though: basic training for nuclear security. Now, having passed both the Foundation Module and the Elective Module for Executive Managers, I must admit that I have gained a lot of new ideas and perspectives. As shown in the elective, combining security and business is very important nowadays. It is crucial to know how to speak the business language and how to prove to others that your security programme is effective."
