We've had threads about best and worst SC, Hottest babes and legendary techs, But; Who taught you to survive (And hopefully flourish!) in the business?  For me there are a few names that come to mind...

John Mates (Sage) and Bob Zelanca: Taught me the ins and outs of a business I would have never figured out for     myself Grin

Jed Ball: Taught me the basics of job coverage ( And that there ain't nuttin to be skeered of! Cool)

Frank Robinson: For picking up where Jed left off (The Arcane why it is so stuff!  Shocked)

and Finally Todd Roberts (Unknowingly!) For motivating me to go look at what the Procedure/Ansi standard/CFR actually says rather than just being beat up by it Wink.

Oh too many to name.  I got my start from my ex John Tinnin who I have to admit  taught well and was always there for advice.  Been to lots of plant and places and don't want to leave anyone out so thanks to everyone who taught me how to be a good HP.   I believe you can learn something from everyone in the biz ya just got want to.

I had many "abusive Sr.s" during my Jr. time that helped mold me into what I am today, whatever that might be.  Buddy Burkett, Larry Brantley, Trent Lancelot, Bo Straub, Mike Dragosljvich, Jack Horne,
Barry Keele, Enky(sp?)Shelton, John McAvoy(sp?),Don Morgan, to name a few.  They actually tried to
teach you something and let ya do stuff rather that just send you in to do the shiftly or smear and clear
until your arms fell off.

Atomic_Punk I was right there with ya.  I was taught buy some of the guys on your list.  I also got it from Kris Hammond, Steve Reed, Ric Garcia, and Rick Doherty.  Love their teaching techniques.  Here put these papers on, put your respirator on, and get you butt on the platform.  I'll tell you when to come out or when you screw up.  We had some pretty good times.

I would have to pay homage to Maha (rip), Pappy Engel (rip), Keith LeClair, Alan Daniell, Shawn Buckallew (Big Buck) and many, many more "old timers" for teaching me the do's and don'ts of this business.  Every one of them had something to pass along to new people coming along.

After leaving health and education for 18 years and joining the nuclear world I have become a much happier person.  It is a field unto itself.  I love my job and everyday there is something new to learn or experience.  I have had many, many fine HP's share - mentor me and show me the ropes.  A great big thanks  Smiley :)to them all!  Many of the exceptional techs taught me: Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of high intention, sincere effort, intelligent direction and skillful execution; it represents the wise choice of many alternatives." -- Willa A.

I too cut my teeth with the likes of Atomic Punk at PV.  Hats of Jim McDonnell, Frank Dinch, Tony Serrano and the rest of the crew for their mentoring! I'll even give credit to JnyMac!  But the one that stands out is the Honorable "Tom Roe".  A true friend and teacher!

Ah, yes!  The Honorable Tommy Roe.  One the few human beings I've met in my life who was more sarcastic than myself.  And I mean that in a GOOD way!  One of the more intelligent ones I've met along the way.

I've been very lucky in my relatively short time in the biz to work with many people who are more than willing to steer me in the right direction, and also to work right beside me.  Not only in the actual work, but also in the politics and other junk that sometimes surrounds us.
Thanks to you all!

I've never stopped learning from others. (I try not to make the same mistakes i've seen and dulplicate the neato stuff I witnessed.)
I learned the basics from Nuke Subs in the Navy and once the blinders came off in the real world of Nukedom I've learned and passed on as much as I can to my fellow nukeworkers.......although the latest crop of Techs think my stories are made up....if they only knew what the industry was like pre-FFD.

My thanks to all of you who helped out fellow nukeworkers, pass it on.

well been an rct for 4 years at a DOD site... many old timers still around willing to help us young guys who really want to learn and not just sit the point (man thats the worst job on the water front) or do weeklies...
-lou for slapping me when i screw up and saving my as* and showing me how things really happen
-george for knowing when to walk away..and buying all the beer after work
-gary for never screwing up my time
-larry for showing me how to over do swipes (25 0n a PB hookup..come on)
-charle for showing me how NOT to do a gamma survey
-and all others who have contributed to me becoming the learned tech i am today i couldnt have done it without you...

You learned from Mike Squires?  Anyway the Hatch days of old will never be the same.  As for Dorsey, he was a good man in his own way.  He was tough on some and better on others.  Good technicians learn from their own mistakes and ask the right questions to the right people.

who did i learn from..id have to say nukewoker!! lolol..yes its true..let me explain..

after attending college to be a HP tech..my husband died..so i stayed home with my children and raised them..i was unable to go on the road. When the children were raised..15 years later, some friends of mine referred me to this site, and to Bartlett.

Nukeworker has been there for me as i took endless practice tests..studied..watched silently..i learned and relearned this industry.. I now work for Bartlett..i began again in the industry as a deconner..learning more and more with every job i go to, and every tech i encouter teaches me something. Im booked for the next 3 months and anticipate next year to be working almost all year.

 Thanks to Nukeworker and thanks to Eric and thanks to everyone that in their own way , supported my dream without even knowing it..from the jokes that made me smile, to the person who wrote the quizzes..and the people who donated to keep this site open for techs like me ..who couldnt afford to at the time..I think this is the longest post ive ever written.Ya'll have a great day  Smiley

Jack Horne, Ken Larson, Ira Perkins, Steve Ruisi to name but a few of the people I have garnered a lot of insight from.  After 10 years in the business I have found that to stop listening and learning from others would be the biggest mistake one could ever make.
