The course is comprehensive with respect to programmatic aspects of 10 CFR 50 Appendix J, provides a specific focus on current industry developments such NEI 94‐01 Rev 3A, and now incorporates a “hands‐on” Local Leak Rate Testing (LLRT) demonstration where students perform valve lineups, simulate troubleshooting and collect leak rate results using an LLRT mock‐up complete with associated test equipment.
Managing a power plant’s Appendix J Program requires talents from and interfaces with various disciplines, combined with practical ability and a good understanding of the regulatory requirements.
The course is designed to provide an initial conceptual overview of Appendix J and the regulatory documents that provide implementation guidance and requirements, followed by comprehensive and in-depth practical application of those requirements. In addition, discussions related to specific plant activities, that when implemented facilitate program incorporation of industry best practices, are ongoing throughout the course. The course curriculum has been designed to meet the needs of the student regardless of experience level.
GSE is integrally involved in the Appendix J Owners Group (APOG) and the Inservice Testing Owners Group (ISTOG) and has performed Appendix J and Inservice Testing Program related assessments. TrueNorth has also presented IST, Thermal Performance, Heat Exchanger, and GL-89-13 training throughout the Nuclear Industry.
