The NEA Data Bank Computer Program Service (CPS) has been conducting training activities for more than 30 years. These courses provide a unique opportunity to bring together code users from around the world, facilitating exchanges on the use of computer codes on nuclear data.
Additional training courses on nuclear data processing and thermodynamic data collection and assessment are also organised by the NEA Data Bank.
Training courses and interactive workshops are offered on the most widely used computer programs, by the authors of the codes. They are held both at the NEA headquarters in Paris and in participating countries.
Several training sessions in English are held each year. It includes different formats ranging from groups of 10 to 20 people, mainly for 5 days or in some cases 3 days of training.
Class sizes are limited (up to 20 people) and workshops may be cancelled if minimum enrollment is not obtained one month prior to the workshop. Workshop fees are to be paid in advance and are refundable up to one month before each class.
The fee includes the training course, luncheons and coffee breaks.
For participants working in France: the NEA is not a training centre ("centre de formation"), no training agreement ("convention de formation") will be established.
