AMS to Host Wireless Technology Training Seminar


AMS will be hosting a new Wireless Technology Training Seminar on Monday, June 25th, 2018 at the AMS Training Center in Knoxville, Tennessee. This one-day course will provide an understanding of the use of wireless applications in nuclear power plants including EMI/RFI considerations, exclusion zones, mobile workforce implications, and a review of applicable regulatory guidance and related operating experience. The seminar will be led by AMS’ EMC Manager Chad Kiger, a licensed PE in the state of Tennessee and an iNARTE–certified EMC Engineer and MIL-STD EMC Specialist who has served as a CSI for an IAEA CRP relating to Wireless Implementation in nuclear power plants, the Project Leader for the revision to IEC 62003 relating to electromagnetic compatibility testing, and co-led the IEC 62988 Standard.

The course will coincide with the ISA’s Power Industry Division Symposium, providing the opportunity to attend both events during the same week. The POWID Symposium will be held June 26 – 28 at the University of Tennessee Conference Center.
