Confinement Ventilation and Process Gas Treatment Functional Area Qualification Standard
The Confinement Ventilation and Process Gas Treatment (CV&PGT) FAQS establishes common functional area competency requirements for all DOE CV&PGT personnel who provide assistance, direction, guidance, oversight, or evaluation of contractor technical activities that could impact the safe operation of DOE’s defense nuclear facilities. The technical FAQS has been developed as a tool to assist DOE program and field offices in the development and implementation of the TQP in their organization. For ease of transportability of qualifications between DOE elements, program and field offices are expected to use this technical FAQS without modification. Satisfactory and documented attainment of the competency requirements contained in this technical FAQS ensures that personnel possess the minimum requisite competence to fulfill their functional area duties and responsibilities common to the DOE complex. Additionally, needed office-/site-/facility-specific qualification standards, handled separately, supplement this technical FAQS and establish unique operational competency requirements at the headquarters or field element, site, or facility level.
