June 2002 visitors to the Nuclear Reactor Laboratory

In June 2002, the Nuclear Reactor Laboratory hosted a group of 22 visitors from nuclear regulatory agencies from several Asian countries including China, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam. The visit was part of a six-week course sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency and Argonne National Laboratory. The objective of the program was to help participating nations' regulatory agencies to develop comprehensive training programs in the areas of nuclear reactor operations and radiation safety.

The Reactor Laboratory served as an example of a training program at a major U.S. university equipped with a training and research reactor. The participants attended a lecture that outlined the various training programs offered by the Reactor Laboratory and participated in a reactor demonstration to see how the reactor is used in these training programs.
