黒川 和哉 Kazuya KUROKAWA Abstract To survive the tide of electric power industry deregulation, actions for streamlining our operation must be compatible with safety of plant operation. Regarding human resource issue, retirement of first line engineers who developed their practical technical skills through the process of experiencing numerous problems or plant construction becomes concerns for declining our engineering abilities. Under these circumstances, training program must be optimized to bring up sophisticate d maintenance engineers with considering effective and efficient method or contents. Yet IAEA's SAT (Systematic Approach to Training) method is getting widely applied to develop operators in nuclear power plants, it is not much reported for the ap plication to maintenance engineers. This paper will discuss our implementation of introducing more effective and efficient training for maintenance engineers together with analysis of education program system as a whole while referring SAT method.
