I have been employed in the nuclear security industry for over thirty seven (37) years and for over thirty (30) of those years I have held the position of a nuclear security training/firearms instructor.
During this time I have become very knowledgeable of the federal governments'(NRC) requirements in regards to the training required for nuclear security officers, the SAT processes required for the training and the site processes for the required training.
Here at Plant Vogtle I was, and still am, an integral part of the initial SNC Fleet nuclear security training peer team that was formed in 2003 to ensure that the SAT process was completed for the NRC Security Training Order requirements in 2003 and again in 2009 with the NRC issued Regulatory Guide 5.75 "Training and Qualification of Security Personnel at Nuclear Power Reactor Facilities".
Over the past six (6) to seven (7) years I have been acting in the capacity as the lead nuclear security training instructor per the direction of my training department supervision.
The main reason for this given direction is the fact that I was the only security instructor in the training department that conducted security training during the years of 1997-2001. I was responsible for the security training program during that period of time. I conducted new hire training, continuing training, firearms training, CAS/SAS training and was the security department armorer for several years. I was responsible for all aspects of the Vogtle nuclear security training program.
It was during this time period that the required security continuing training was only a total of ten (10) weeks per year. Due to this I had the time to learn and become proficient in the computer programs such as LXR (Exam Bank - both for SGI and Non-SGI), LMS (Learning Management System), and WebTop which are currently needed to conduct and complete the training processes required. I am currently the only instructor knowledgeable and proficient in these computer programs and when anyone needs materials, either produced or just information based from these programs, I am the person required to produce the requested materials/information.
I have maintained nuclear security training, by myself for a short period of time, and with the assistance of the nuclear security training staff, in the safe operation of security training. I have maintained federal and company compliance through my involvement in numerous NRC and SNC QA inspections/audits. I have maintained a zero NRC/QA violation record in all of my years leading the nuclear security training department at Plant Vogtle.
