JAEA has conducted Instructor Training Program (ITP) to support Asian countries seeking peaceful use of nuclear energy. The program consists of (1) Instructor Training Course (ITC) in Japan, (2) Follow-up Training Course (FTC) in own countries, and (3) Nuclear Technology Seminar for bringing up nuclear trainers and leaders. The purpose of ITP is to develop a self-sustainable training system in Asian countries by disseminating the knowledge and technology in their countries. After completing ITC, the trainees are obliged to set up FTC in each country. Two or three Japanese experts join the FTC to give technical advices and support to local lecturers. The present specialized fields of ITC are (1) Reactor engineering such as reactor physics, thermal engineering and reactor safety, (2) Environmental radioactivity monitoring, and (3) Nuclear emergency preparedness. As of FY2014, ITC is applied to 8 Asian countries. Present paper summarizes the outlines, experiences and future prospects of ITP.
