GSE Systems, Inc. (“GSE” or “the Company”) (NYSE: GVP), a global energy services solutions provider and the world leader in providing high-fidelity nuclear plant simulators, is partnering with the European training and development services division of American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME), a non-profit technical professional association that promotes multidisciplinary engineering around the globe, to deliver a one-day course entitled, “Introduction to Nuclear Power Operations” at Strathclyde University in Glasgow, UK Thursday 22 March 2012.

The course is targeted to engineers and technical support personnel who are considering a career in the nuclear power industry. It is designed to familiarize these industry professionals with the primary components, functionality, and terminology associated with the UK’s current Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor and modern light water reactor designs. The level and depth of this course should assist delegates to efficiently integrate into teams working on nuclear generation projects. A variety of full-scope power plant simulators, delivered by GSE to Strathclyde University, will be used during the course.

The instructor, Stuart Harrison, Director of Training for GSE Systems in the UK, has over 20 years of experience in the nuclear industry as both educator and advisor in the development of industry occupational standards in the UK.

Since 2007, GSE has partnered with the University of Strathclyde to provide simulation training and education for energy industry professionals. GSE’s on site, high-fidelity simulators replicate actual control rooms with instrumentation driven by computer models that mirror a plant’s actual response to normal operating conditions. Simulations of a variety of industrial processes are used as part of the University’s MSc in Power Plant Engineering, as well as for customer specific industrial training.

Full course description and registration information is available on the website.
