Training of Consumers Public Power District Personnel for the Operation of the Hallam Nuclear Power Facility
Description: Training of Consumers Public Power District (CPPD) operating personnel for the Hallam Nuclear Power Facility (HNPF) was carried out under two formalized training programs. Both programs were organized and directed by Atomics International (AI). The first program was conducted in 1960 while he HNPF was under construction. The second program was begun in September 1961, prior to the initial HNPF dry critical loading experiment, and was completed in February 1963. The conventional portion of Sheldon Station has been a commercial power plant since July 1, 1961. Sheldon Station CPPD personnel were utilized extensively as instructors for the two formalized HNPF training programs and as responsible engineers for numerous test of the HNPF. CPPD shift personnel constituted the principal operating force throughout HNPF construction, reactor startup, and testing.
