Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities - Training Course

Policies & Practices

Please note the following policies and practices related to the Decommissioning Training Courses:


  • Applicants are encouraged to register electronically.  Early registration is highly recommended due to the limited class size.
  • We highly recommend that attendees register no later than two weeks (10 working days) before the scheduled start date for the TC.
  • All questions on the online registration form marked as mandatory must be answered. If you do not answer every question, your application may not be able to be processed in a timely manner.
  • In the event the online submission does not work, the registration form is also available as a PDF document to download, print, fill out by hand and fax to us.
  • Space will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.  Website registration for each session will be opened for applicants several months before each session and closed once we reach our capacity. 
  • ONLY for TC sessions at Argonne:
    All foreign visitors (non-US Citizens) requiring access to the Argonne site are required to obtain access authorization prior to arrival. This requires completion of the form ANL-593 and submittal of it for approvals which - depending on the visitors nationality - typically requires somewhere between 21 days - 30 days.


Registration Fee Details

  • Registration Fee includes: One electronic copy of TC materials. Namely: the TC registration fee includes either 1-USB stick or 1-CD containing the main training course materials. Paper copies of the training materials can be purchased for an additional $200 USD.
  • People registering only as exhibitors will not receive a copy of the training materials.
  • The attendee is fully responsible for all travel related costs (lodging, per diem, transportation to/from the training course, etc) and all other attendance-related costs. Course prices do not cover travel or accommodation costs. Attendees are fully responsible for making transportation and hotel arrangements. See also Frequently Asked Questions.
  • Accepted Currency: The TC Registration fees are to be paid in US dollars - no foreign currencies will be accepted for payment.
  • The registration fee, or proof of forthcoming payment, must be received prior to the course.
