The two-week training was organized under the state program “Education and youth policy” for 2016-2020. One of the sub-programs includes measures to develop the nuclear industry personnel training system in Belarus.

The major part of training was held in the training unit of the Rostov nuclear power plant on the full-scale simulator of the reactor and the turbine, the replica of the unit control board of the nuclear plant. The students also visited the Rostov nuclear power plant to get familiar with the manufacturing process.

The Rostov nuclear power plant has helped to train personnel for the Belarusian nuclear power plant since 2014.

The Belarusian nuclear power plant is being built near Ostrovets, Grodno Oblast using a Russian design featuring two VVER-1200 reactors with the total output capacity of 2,400MW. The general contractor is the Rosatom State Atomic Energy Corporation. The first power-generating unit is scheduled for commissioning in 2020, with the second one to go online in 2021.
