52  Reference, Questions and Help / Lessons Learned / Re: Tina’s Training Trauma (From Bartlett thread) on: Mar 16, 2007, 12:17
Tina,

I suggest taking a look at the practice test http://www.nukeworker.com/quiz/quiz_info.php?quiz_id=16

That will give you an idea of what questions may be on it...

Here is information on requirements to take the test:

"# Education
The applicant shall have a high school diploma or equivalent. In addition, the applicant must submit to the Board evidence of operational abilities as a Radiation Protection Technologists.

# Age
The applicant shall be at least 21 years old at the time of application.

# Experience
An applicant must have a minimum of five years experience. Training may be substituted for experience if the applicant will submit to the Board information about the program and proof of completion. This information should include curriculum, typical examinations, and passing requirements for radiation related subjects.

Experience credit allowed for formal education, company training programs and applicable military training is cummulative up to a maximum of two years. Note that an applicant may not claim work experience while in formal classroom study.

# Examination
After approval of the application, the prospective registrant must successfully complete a national examination.

I found this information on NRRPT.org which is the official site of The National Registry of Radiation Protection Technologist.  It contains more information on what is needed for the test such as study information and fees. 

I suggest looking under Examination Information and FAQ's

The NRRPT.org site and this site should be able to answer your questions on why the test is so esteemed in our circles. 

Have a good one!

55  Reference, Questions and Help / Polls / Re: Laundry on: Mar 04, 2007, 07:21
I usually take two weeks worth of socks and undies with me and a weeks worth atleast of clothes in general....when youre switching to scrubs as soon as you get in things like jeans and shirts can be reworn.  Then when its time I just haul it all to the wash and fold.  Usually runs about 20 bucks or so for a large large load and they actually do things like separate it and fold it that I would never do if I were doing clothes at a laundry mat on my only day off.

Translation:Are you freaking serious? Do I agree that nukes are the cleanest and safest means available presently in the US?  He** Yes! Because my livelihood depends on them? Because I grew up breathing coal fired smog? Because all of the moving water is effectively dammed and put to use? Because solar power is only available half of the time on a good day? Because wind power depends on whether the wind blows, and whether Ted Kennedy must look at it? Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes.

What are the working conditions like out there?  Are they hiring?  Who would one contact in order to obtain employment?  Is there a direct contact with the prime contractor that does the hiring of RCT's?

So far from everyone I've spoken to that is employed by Marcom  really enjoy the experience compared to other staffing companies.  The contact info is available on the job boards.

Attached are pictures of the first plush NukeWorker prototype.

Comments are welcome.

So is optional velcro on dosimetry going to be available?  if not velcro then just little pieces of duct tape will work

Now here's an OBSERVATION, My wife's LG Chocolate phone has a camera, but the lens is only visible when the phone is open.


Yes thatll pass if youre at a plant thats a little lax in their inspections.  I've been to several plants that when they see the phone in your bag after the xray they take a look at it to check whether or not its a camera phone.   That was entergy south and progress I believe may be more theyre all just somewhat blending togeather in my mind at this time of night.

64  News and Discussions / History & Trivia / Re: Uranium abundence on: Feb 11, 2007, 08:46
Uranium is 40 times more naturally abundant than silver.

Concentration - uranium ranks 48th among the most abundant elements found in natural crustal rock.

It is more plentiful than antimony, tin, cadmium, mercury, or silver and is about as abundant as arsenic or molybdenum. It is found in hundreds of minerals including uraninite (the most common uranium ore), autunite, uranophane, torbernite, and coffinite. Significant concentrations of uranium occur in some substances such as phosphate rock deposits, and minerals such as lignite, and monazite sands in uranium-rich ores (it is recovered commercially from these sources with as little as 0.1% uranium).

Thank you wikipedia Smiley

start looking through the forums...there is tons of information on what you can do with your background already available on the site.  If youve got a clean background youre sure to get in.  The hardest part is getting on with a company this late in the season, but theres always next season for outage work.  Just submit your resume to anything appropriate and good luck.

Your best bet is to look into something in idaho falls....although be sure to check references and such I've seen a few not so nice things on the news about one local daycare but I dont recall its name.

Ok, Thanks Bat Man and Shayne. I'm most interested in just booties and glove, no lab coat. We have areas posted CA, that you could roll around on the floor and not get contaminated. Full dress is a pain, espeacially if you are just "looking"!

70  Career Path / Getting in / Re: hi and a question on: Jan 28, 2007, 11:46
try to wiki it for starters.....are you looking for something thats still theoretical or a proven cost effective design? I would suggest looking into what MIT has been doing as of late with batteries and berkeleys got a wild little design http://www.coe.berkeley.edu/labnotes/1002/reactor.html .....get to googling!

the two being merged would be nice....a nice clean interface integrating both would be a pleasure rather than having to log into another thing when youre already logged into one. 
72  Reference, Questions and Help / Nuke Q&A / Re: Nuclear Contraband on: Jan 13, 2007, 07:42
a sim is a subscriber identity module....depending on your provider you may already have one.  Its a little postage stamp sized card that sits under your battery that tells your phone what number its suppose to use.  If your phone is on a GSM network then you use a sim. In order to switch phones you just take your battery out, pop the card out, then place it in the other phone.  Heres a Wiki on it http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subscriber_Identity_Module

The two most popular carriers with SIMs are Tmobile and Cingular.  Ive used my phone in europe thanks to the versatility of having a SIM.  I bought a prepaid card there and used it in my handset.  Sure I had an english number but saved me on international roaming! Virgin also has a SIM.  If you were to buy a phone online make sure its unlocked or you have someone that can unlock it for you.  I found those places easy enough to find in tampa or london for that matter but if youre in a rural area than you may have a problem so shop wisely on ebay or any website like price grabber.  I've always like the motorola phones currently I switch between a PEBL and the V195 and in the past I've also used the V300 whos newer equivalent is the V330. Those Razrs that are advertised  all the time are also a nice camera phone that has a model available that takes a sim.  If youre not on a carrier that takes a sim, there arent many options.  With sprint I had a phone that wasnt too shabby, it was a  sanyo....available in 5 different colors (i had brown) I dont recall the model number but still have it floating around somewhere so I can find it if you need it. 

Do note that Nextel does take a sim but its not your standard GSM technology from what I understand atleast.  Check with them if other phones are compatible before investing in a phone that wont work.  If anything you can still switch the card with other models provided by them but you may have to invest full price on a phone or find a nextel phone on ebay, craigslist, etc...

Hope this helps...Feel free to ask me anything else.
