We reviewed training for Nuclear Security, Emergency Preparedness, and Fire Brigade to determine if required nuclear training was being taken by TVA personnel. We reviewed training completion records for a sample of employees assigned to fire brigade, nuclear security, and emergency preparedness roles and found not all required training was completed. Specifically, we found (1) 1 of 54 employees did not complete the required emergency preparedness training, and (2) 3 of the 91 employees who perform fire brigade functions were missing a quarterly training. In addition, we determined some employees who perform the nuclear security and emergency preparedness functions exceeded the time frames for completing training established in TVA procedures. Additionally, we identified opportunities for improvement regarding the (1) establishment, assignment, and tracking of training requirements and (2) logs used to document fire brigade member assignments.
