Users can complete the modules at their own pace. They consist of reading materials, videos, links to additional resources, online activities, and self-assessments. 

NSSEP modules are primarily focused on three areas:

  • Basic Nuclear Science: These modules are intended to give individuals with an interest in nuclear safeguards, security, and nonproliferation a background in nuclear science to enable them to understand the technical aspects of these areas.
  • Nuclear Safeguards: These modules help to develop the technical skills needed to help design and implement systems and technologies for safeguarding nuclear materials at commercial nuclear facilities and detecting covert nuclear activities.
  • Nuclear Security: These modules are focused on identifying and mitigating nuclear security threats. Topics range from the design and assessment of physical protection systems to human reliability and nuclear security culture.
