Following the course, attendees presented their comments on the organization and conduct of the
first training course and wishes regarding future courses. Among other comments, there were
suggestions to develop a more detailed course taught in two, or even three, individual groups to
provide specialization and detail. The importance of inviting the same attendees to the following,
more detailed course was noted. This eliminates having to repeat material to allow new students
to catch up so that the second course can start immediately with detailed instruction for in
specialized topics. Each of these courses will be prepared separately, including curricula and
Detailed Methods and Operations for MPC&A at Russian Navy Sites
The objective of this second training course is to prepare Naval personnel to work independently
in their particular area of MPC&A at Naval facilities. All attendees had successfully completed
the previous fundamentals course. The attendees were divided into two groups, either materials
accounting and control or physical protection, depending upon their major work responsibilities.
Participants involved in supervisory activities attended the classes of their interest. The
development of the curriculum for this class took into account the experience and comments of
the instructors and attendees of the first course. As with the first course, material from RMTC
and MEPhI was incorporated where appropriate.
In this class much attention was paid to practical sessions and student participation. A flexible
format was maintained, allowing the instructors to test progress as the class progressed and adjust
the content to address any deficiencies that arose. Examples and exercises were developed with
the first of the Naval facilities to be upgraded in mind (land-based and floating platforms).
Trainees in the nuclear materials accounting and control group had practical sessions in
measurements and measurement data processing at the KI Central Storage Facility. Practical
sessions were held on the preparation of accounting records and reports using a computerized
system. The training process for this group included the following topics:
" legislation and regulatory basis at the federal, ministerial, and facility levels;
" review of accounting and control systems in the fuel cycle with emphasis on implementation in
the Russian Navy;
" principals of MC&A organization at Russian Navy facilities, including material balance areas
and key measurement points (examples were taken from land-based sites and floating
" methods of containment and surveillance at Russian Fuel facilities, including remote
monitoring technologies, methods of non-destructive analysis, statistical processing of
measurement results, and bar code technologies;
" preparation and conduct of physical inventory, analysis of possible errors and means of
correction (examples were taken from land-based sites and floating platforms);
" computerized system of MC&A for the Navy, including system operation and maintenance of
records and reports;
" management and supervision of MC&A at the level of a Naval facility, including verification
of records and reports and conduct of inspections.
