Overview This paper proposes the development of an e-learning training program designed to assist waste management mechanic with continuing training exclusively to the unique tasks waste management mechanics experience. At Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne), the Waste Management Department (WM) is a site-wide service organization (Waste Management, 2015), which: • Runs permitted waste processing, storage, and shipping facilities. • Assists generators with the management and disposition of their wastes, • Supports facility Deactivation & Demolition (D &D), • Nuclear footprint reduction projects, • heads the Laboratory 's disposition efforts in the area of Unneeded Materials and Chemicals (UMCs), • Performs asbestos and lead abatement…show more content…
In e-learning courses, information is offered over computer networks to instructors and students who are often in different physical locations, but are accessing the same materials through their computers. WM is required to adhere to a number of Department of Energy (DOE) orders more specifically, DOE Order 426.2 Personnel Selection, Training, Qualification, and Certification Requirements for DOE Nuclear Facilities states, “Continuing training programs must be structured commensurate with specific position needs, and must be administered on a cycle not to exceed two years. Continuing training must include, at a minimum, training in significant facility system and component changes, applicable procedure changes, applicable industry operating experience, selected fundamentals with emphasis on seldom used knowledge and skills necessary to assure safety, and other training as needed to correct identified performance problems.” As the order mandates, the continuing program must coincide with the exact job task, procedures, industry standards and be administered on a routine basis. A waste mechanic’s knowledge base is quite extensive including an understanding of asbestos and lead abatement regulations, radiological, chemical and facility specific requirements. The program will provide e-learning training for these areas in a series of modules that depending on the complexity of the task may be augmented by
