Abstract

The Knowledge and Abilities Catalog for Nuclear Power Plant Operators: Westinghouse AP1000 Pressurized-Water Reactors (NUREG-2103) provides the basis for the development of content-valid licensing examinations for reactor operators and senior reactor operators. 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 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR) Part 55, "Operators' Licenses."

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

This Knowledge and Abilities Catalog was developed specifically to address the passive nature of the Westinghouse AP1000 design.
