In 2007, the U.S. nuclear industry launched the Nuclear Uniform Curriculum Program (NUCP), managed by the Nuclear Energy Institute (NEI). The NUCP is a standardized certificate program designed to ensure the workforce is trained and in place at the right time. The NUCP was developed to quantify the need for nuclear plant workers, define industry-approved curriculum, and implement the right number of programs. The intent is that graduates could be waived or exempted from portions of required initial training. By organizing industry partnerships with two-year education programs, it leverages resources to provide the next generation of highly skilled workers.
