This deliverable summarizes some theoretical background information for EURAD partners and external training providers who have the intention of creating a course within the frame of radioactive waste management. It explains the different steps to reflect upon when designing a training course. It also formulates some quality criteria for self-assessment. Finally, it provides the feedback forms to be used by all EURAD training providers.
Complementary to this deliverable, Work Package (WP) 13 can individually advice the Research, Development & Demonstration and Strategic Studies WPs of EURAD on how to set up an optimal training event.
The proposed quality criteria and training specifications highlighted in this report are mainly based on (i) the IAEA Systematic Approach to Training (SAT) and (ii) some principles of the EC EQF (European Qualification Framework) and ECVET (European credit system for vocational education and training).
