Excellent learning and peer-to-peer networking opportunities with a cross-section of the nuclear industry.
The world’s first certified professional development programme for individuals in nuclear security management.
An extensive archive of information on nuclear security, both from WINS and from external sources.
Helping licensees assess the maturity of their security programme and measure their security culture effectiveness.
We offer two streams of certification, the Certified Nuclear Security Professional programme and the Certified Radioactive Source Security Professional programme.
Each stream uses a problem-solving approach to learning that is practitioner-focused, hands-on, cross-disciplinary and immediately useful.
All modules tell a compelling, well-researched story designed for an educated audience without using bureaucratic or academic language. We incorporate numerous case studies, exercises and questions for reflection to stimulate thinking and increase learning.
Our programmes can be completed entirely online, with no prior knowledge or other prerequisites required for each stream.
Our Certified Nuclear Security Professional (CNSP) programme consists of a Foundation Module plus one of eight elective modules for participants to complete. To receive CNSP certification, the exam pass grade for each module is 65% and participants will have the option to take the exams at a PearsonVUE test centre or by remote online proctoring.
Our Certified Radioactive Source Security Professional (CRSP) programme consists of a single module. Due to the targeted nature of the programme, it does not require participants to enrol in the Foundation Module. To receive CRSP certification, the exam pass grade is 65% and participants will have the option to take the exam at a PearsonVUE test centre or by remote online proctoring.View our Single-Module Programme
