The program lasted for 3 months interposed by a training program in which technically focused programs provided in different areas of nuclear energy and programs specialized in designing the reactor's core, fluid system design, mechanical design and designing the interaction between the machine as well as the safety analysis of SMART reactors. The third phase of the program of Developing Human Capabilities shall start as of the beginning of the following month and lasts for a whole year covering field training and participation in preparing the engineering designs of SMART reactor.
This program comes within the efforts exerted to achieve the Royal Vision 2030. As this project is considered one of K.A.CARE initiatives included in the National Transformation Program 2020 which was approved this year and will contribute to Saudizing the nuclear knowledge and supporting Value Chains and the Kingdom's entry as a developer, owner and future exporter of nuclear energy technologies. K.A.CARE seeks from these programs to provide locally and internationally training opportunities to graduates, also entering long term partnerships with brotherly and friendly countries for trade and knowledge transference to maximize the capabilities of the Kingdom's cognitive investment.
