HCO Training REQUIRED for 12 GeV Accelerator Operations; Live Session on Aug. 7

This is an important Jefferson Lab Training Requirement announcement: If after reading this memo, you are unsure if you should take the training discussed below, please talk with your supervisor.

A new Hot Checkout (HCO) process has been developed along with a web-based training module (GEN134) for the 12 GeV CEBAF accelerator.

HCO training will describe the process through which hardware and software systems (old and new) are tested for function and signed off as beam ready. This training will cover status updates, sign-off requirements and instructional information.

This training is required of all JLab staff including technicians, group leaders and system experts/system owners who work on accelerator components, and must be completed by close of business Sept. 16. (This training requirement will affect staff in the following areas: the Accelerator Division; Engineering Division; Free-Electron Laser Division; Facilities Management and Logistics; and 12 GeV Upgrade Project team.)

The web-based training module (GEN134) is available online at: http://www.jlab.org/div_dept/train/webbasedtraining.html.

Questions may be directed to the Engineering Division’s Ken Baggett, ext. 6088, or Ron Lauze, ext. 7186.
