SAPHIRE course

The SAPHIRE training class teaches the basics of the PRA code SAPHIRE developed by the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission for the nuclear industry, although today it is widely used by many industries such as aerospace, petrochemical, etc.

The class teaches users how to input event trees, fault trees, and basic events, perform quantifications, how to do sanity checking of models, printing of reports, and how to merge models.

It is typically taught to people with a rudimentary understanding of PRA, although a basic "What is PRA?" class can be combined with the SAPHIRE class.

This course typically runs for 3 full days, although it can be tailored to specific needs.
