"Engineering Knowledge Transfer for the 21st Century"

January, 2020



The Advanced Engineering Training (AET) initiative produced highly technical Computer Based Training modules to facilitate knowledge transfer and retention efforts at commercial nuclear facilities.

The initiative is funded and sponsored by all of the US operating commercial nuclear power plants.

The topics selected by the AET Steering Committee align to key areas of technical specialties across Engineering at the site. The focus is on areas of expertise that only a few select senior engineers may possess.

All of the CBTs produced by AET are hosted on INPO’s NANTeL learning management system. A NANTeL User ID and Password are required to access the CBTs.

This catalog also lists training that is commercially available, not produced by AET.


Access to AET CBTs is restricted to the following:

  • Employees of US commercial nuclear power plants and their corporate offices
  • Contractors of US commercial nuclear power plants-specific individuals, not their company, who have been assigned a CBT for the purpose of supporting specific related work at the plant
  • Employees of companies and organizations who have entered into an AET contract with Exelon PowerLabs. The current list of these companies and organizations is listed here.

Information About NANTeL

NANTeL is a web-based learning management system owned and hosted by the Institute for Nuclear Power Operations (INPO) in Atlanta, GA. Access to NANTeL requires a NANTeL user id and password. Every utility in the U.S. has at least one NANTeL administrator who has the rights to create new users.

Contact your training department to determine who your NANTeL Administrator is or click here.

In order to get access to any CBT on NANTeL including AET CBTs, you must first request that a NANTeL administrator assign the course to you.


The Advanced Engineering Training initiative is a nuclear industry effort to develop technical computer based training modules for targeted areas of engineering expertise. The modules are being developed using the systematic approach to training and are being designed to maintain industry engineering expertise and to facilitate engineering knowledge transfer.

AET is funded and sponsored by the US nuclear utility engineering vice presidents and directors.

AET is led by the following engineers:
