Not only will it be necessary to develop new technical systems for the physical protection of new sites over the coming years, but it will also be necessary to ensure the guaranteed operation of both the earlier and the new systems. There will also be a need to train qualified personnel to operate these systems and provide them with ongoing training. The establishment of regional training and technical centers along the lines of the KTTC can help to resolve these complex tasks over the coming years.
As experience gained from the cooperation between Russia and the U.S. has proven to be effective for Russian facilities and regions and as it continues to develop, it could be reasonably applied to third countries. Strong, mutually collaborative, experienced teams of Russian and American specialists could arrange initial training, including in safety culture issues, develop criteria and requirements for the MPC&A systems, design and modify or create such systems, and further establish on-site technical training centers on the model of the Kola Training and Technical Center to organize regular training of local personnel.

As of 2013, the National Science Education Standards have been replaced by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), available as a print book, free PDF download, and online with our OpenBook platform.
The NGSS offer a detailed description of the key scientific ideas and practices that all students should learn by the time they graduate from high school. The standards are based largely on the 2011 National Research Council report A Framework for K-12 Science Education: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas.
