PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The process of developing an individual into a competent operator who can safely and efficiently operate the Los Alamos Neutron Science Center (LANSCE), or other accelerator facility, is a complex process. It begins with recruiting and ends with retention; steps in between include training, professional development and career advancement. This paper discusses the approaches that the Operations and Technical Support Group at LANSCE has taken to deal with these and other issues associated with assembling a highly competent staff of accelerator operators. Emphasis is placed on operator training, which is accomplished through a self-study program modeled after the US Navy`s ... continued below
