The course was organised by the International Atomic Energy Agency and was held in their offices in Vienna. The training covered both the concepts of performance assessment and safety assessment for near-surface repositories and how GoldSim, including the radionuclide transort module, can be used to quantify these. Positive feedback was received from the participants including:
"This National Training course on GoldSim was very informative, practical and helpful for the safety assessment of future repositories. We learnt a lot from the course. All sessions were well interlinked with each other and subsequent discussions were also well aided with examples and exercises. Theses exercises provided insight in the subject. ... Overall it was a very good course. We look forward for similar activities from you and your company."
