With the view of providing support to the national atomic energy program at every stage, Rosatom makes its foreign customers the integrated offer providing access to the entire range of products and services during the whole NPP life cycle. Besides construction based on Russian technologies, this offer includes creation and development of the national infrastructure; assistance in formation of the corresponding legal base; personnel training and requalification; involvement of the local industry in the project; fuel supply and NPP maintenance; support in NPP operation; spent nuclear fuel management; public acceptance of nuclear power.
Rosatom is able to provide any required support to the customer country in its effort to create and develop the national infrastructure in order to control and regulate the atomic energy program in compliance with the IAEA recommendations. The development of the atomic infrastructure program may start immediately upon decision of a particular state government to include nuclear power in its national energy strategy. Development of the nuclear infrastructure at the early stages of preparation and implementation of the national nuclear program ensures the reduction of possible economic, sociopolitical, nuclear, technical, administrative, financial and other risks.
Save and reliable operation of power as well as research reactors may only be ensured by highly qualified personnel, that is why we pay particular attention to the local staff training. In addition to the NPP employees training, our educational service also includes training courses for the whole range of highly-qualified specialists from technical support personnel to the managers of national regulating and government departments.
Training programs for foreign personnel are based on the IAEA guidelines and standards considering rich experience of leading Russian universities specializing in nuclear specialist training.

Work in the area of public opinion and acceptance of the nuclear technology is important for successful project implementation in any country. Rosatom provides its assistance in PR strategy development and implementation (including seminars, round tables and other issue-related PR events; media trips organized for the customer countries to the Russian nuclear facilities, etc.). Efficient PR tools include the nuclear power information centers. These are PR platforms that are used to provide nuclear technology information and education to schoolchildren, students and teachers.
