Excellent learning and peer-to-peer networking opportunities with a cross-section of the nuclear industry.
The world’s first certified professional development programme for individuals in nuclear security management.
An extensive archive of information on nuclear security, both from WINS and from external sources.
Helping licensees assess the maturity of their security programme and measure their security culture effectiveness.
Our programme consists of a Foundation Module plus nine electives. All participants must first enrol in the Foundation Module and can then select the elective of their choice.
All modules use a problem-based approach to learning that is practitioner-focused, hands-on, cross-functional and immediately useful. Our goal is to ensure that the modules tell a compelling, well-researched story that speaks to an educated audience but avoids stilted bureaucratic or academic language. We also incorporate numerous case studies, exercises and questions for reflection to stimulate thinking and increase learning.
Every module requires approximately 40 hours of study and can be completed entirely online. Traditional hardcopy textbooks are also provided for each course. No prior knowledge or prerequisites are required to sign up for the programme except for a working knowledge of English. (Note that the Foundation Module and the elective modules for Radioactive Source Security Management and for Transport Security Management are also available in Spanish.)View All Modules

Once participants complete a module, they sit for an exam. Those who successfully pass the examinations for both the Foundation Module and the elective module become WINS Certified Nuclear Security Professionals (CNSPs). They also receive access to the WINS Academy Alumni Network, which enables them to benefit from continued professional development.
All of our certification exams are delivered in partnership with Pearson VUE. As the world’s largest testing and assessment provider, Pearson provides over 5,100 accrediting test centres in 180 countries around the world.Find A Test Centre
