The Nuclear Security & Safeguards Education Portal (NSSEP) serves to provide educational resources for students with an interest in nuclear safeguards and the security of nuclear materials. Detecting, preventing, and reversing the proliferation of nuclear materials and technology helps to provide peace and security to the international community.
The course modules provided here are intended to take from 1-4 hours to complete. They consist of reading materials, videos, links to additional resources, and self-assessments. Users can complete the modules at their own pace.
We recommend starting with the “Introduction to Nuclear Safeguards and Security” module, which gives a thorough overview of concepts related to nuclear safeguards and security.
Note: To enroll in the courses, you must use either Chrome or Safari. The enrollment form does not work in Edge, Internet Explorer, or Firefox.
