Travel restrictions have not stopped IAEA training activities this year. On the contrary, more people than ever before have attended web and e-learning courses, now offered only online.
The IAEA provides resources to professionals, students, and the general public on the peaceful use of nuclear science and technology. For years, the IAAA has been providing webinars and online courses, highlighting the value and accessibility of e-learning in 2020. Online participation has been a key point.
The Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNL) has increased its online activities in response to COVID-19 travel and access restrictions. IAEA courses were readily available in March, so PNL was able to quickly integrate online training.
By 2020, about 11,000 users will be enrolled in CLP4NET, the IAEA Cyber Education Forum for Network Education and Training. CLP4NET hosts IAEA free, instructor-led courses and self-study resources. To ensure the safe use of special modules and nuclear applications in medical physics, the platform “distributes high-quality resources and facilitates a sustainable learning environment around the world and in many languages.” There is a training officer who designs and develops George Laure.
A.D. Since the launch of CLP4NET in 2016, more than 40,000 users have enrolled in online courses. The curriculum offers more than 330 courses, of which 118 have been added this year. Read below about some of the IAEA 2020 new courses below.
