Through ENGIE Fabricom, Greg Carney (Mechanical Engineer), was given the opportunity to participate in ENGIE’s Nuclear Trainee Program, studying different areas of nuclear engineering in various locations and training environments across France and Belgium.
The intense 1-year course involved approximately 400 hours of study of various technical modules including safety/security, nuclear safety, radiation protection, nuclear fundamentals, fuel cycle, pressurised water reactors, spent fuel management, decommissioning and maintenance.
In order to pass the course, Greg had to sit a 150 question exam in Brussels testing his knowledge and understanding of nuclear engineering. ENGIE Fabricom is pleased to confirm that all of the hard work and studying paid off as Greg passed and is now a nuclear graduate.
Upon graduation, he was invited to a ceremony in the ENGIE Tower, Paris, where he was presented with his graduation certificate and spent the day reflecting on the course and the current global nuclear sector.
After the graduation, Greg, along with all the other graduates, were chauffeured in a party bus around the city before being taken on a luxury cruise up and down the River Seine, throughout which they were provided with food and entertainment.
Greg commented, “I believe the course was a fantastic experience and I took a lot of new skills from it, that I use every day in work. As well as this, I also got to experience a completely different culture and make a lot of new friends, some of whom I am still in contact with today.”
