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.

Maleka Mafihla

Physical security manager, South African Nuclear Energy Corporation, South Africa.
Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) with Specialisation in Nuclear Security Incident Management, Communicating with Civil Society, Nuclear Security for Executive Management, Science and Engineering for Nuclear Security, and Nuclear Security Governance.

"The programme includes a wealth of nuclear security information and, having been a Physical Security Manager for three years, I had never been given the opportunity to access a dedicated course that addressed the precise role of security in the nuclear industry. The course helped me to systematically locate the nuclear security role, from Board Directors, through the Executive Management and how it cascades down to other departments and units. It also gave me confidence as a security practitioner. The WINS Academy is an important initiative, which not only professionalises nuclear security but will also change the perception of the entire industry and beyond. The programme with all its Elective Modules is a must for all security practitioners in the industry in order to comprehend the security role of all players who are not necessary security practitioners but have a security responsibility in their respective operations."

Kileo Abdalah

Mr. Abdalah Kileo, Researcher, Atomic Energy Commission, Tanzania.
Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) with Specialisation in Science and Engineering for Nuclear Security.

"It is important to learn about nuclear security if we want to protect our industry effectively. For practitioners, the course can equip them to integrate the real environment with the given best practices. The nuclear security certification is useful for every technical person who is working with nuclear and other radioactive materials."
