2.1 Initial Training
The goal of initial training is to supplement position-specific education, experience, and training in order to familiarize technical staff and managers with facility-specific information. This enhances their ability to perform assigned duties in a manner that promotes safe and reliable nuclear facility operations.

2.2 Continuing Training
The goal of the continuing training program is to ensure that technical staff personnel and managers maintain and improve their skills and are cognizant of nuclear facility physical and procedural modifications, changes to DOE and regulatory requirements, and lessons learned from industry and facility-specific operating experience that affect their job performance. Review of important but infrequently used knowledge areas and the development of broader scope and depth of job-related skills and knowledge are also goals of a continuing training program.

2.3 Exceptions
Personnel already proficient in subject material may be excepted from training. Exception refers to the release of an individual from portions of a training program on the basis of the individual's experience, education, and training that is related to the particular job. Even though the training program (or portion thereof) is being excepted, the requisite examinations to establish qualification should be completed. In all cases, the facility should ensure that sufficient facility-specific training is provided to the individual to enable him/her to perform the job requirements in a safe and efficient manner.

1. This Department of Energy (DOE) Handbook is approved for use by all DOE Components and their contractors. The Handbook incorporates editorial changes to DOESTD- 1008, Guide to Good Practices for Training of Technical Staff and Managers, and supersedes DOE-STD-1008-92. Technical content of this Handbook has not changed from the original technical standard. Changes are primarily editorial improvements, redesignation of the standard to a Handbook, and format changes to conform with current Technical Standards Program procedures.

2. This Handbook provides guidance to DOE staff and contractors that can be used as an aid in the design and development of a facility's technical staff and managers' training program.
