Abstract

The Knowledge and Abilities Catalog for Nuclear Power Plant Operators: Westinghouse AP1000 Pressurized-Water Reactors (NUREG-2103, Revision 0) provides the basis for the development of content-valid licensing examinations for reactor operators (ROs) and senior reactor operators (SROs). The examinations developed using this Catalog along with the Operator Licensing Examination Standards for Power Reactors (NUREG-1021) will sample the topics listed under Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations, Part 55 (10 CFR 55).

The catalog is organized into six major sections: Organization of the Catalog, Generic Knowledge and Ability Statements, Plant Systems grouped by safety functions, Emergency and Abnormal Operating Evolutions, Components, and Theory.

This is a new Knowledge and Abilities catalog developed specifically to address the passive nature of the Westinghouse AP1000 design.
