OECD-NEA – Training Courses and Workshops

The Computer Program Service organises training courses and workshops on the widely used computer programs. Additional training courses on nuclear data processing and thermodynamic data collection and assessment are organised by the NEA Data Bank.

For in-person courses, the fee includes the training course, luncheons and coffee breaks.

Class sizes are limited and workshops may be cancelled if minimum enrollment is not obtained one month prior to the workshop. Workshop fees paid are refundable up to one month before each class.

For participants working in France: the NEA is not a training centre (“centre de formation”), no training agreement (“convention de formation”) will be established.
