Hi, could anyone tell me if rctqs is considered for evaluation for taking the nrrpt? I have 46 months of experience and I have a AS in radiation protection, so I believe that counts for a year of experience. Also I did 6 months as a intern but not sure if that counts.  I would like to take it in February of 2015 but not sure if my time as a rct and my education will meet the 5 year requirement.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

The basic qualification is 5 years of hands-on meter-swinging experience.  Education time counts - up to a point.  Go to the NRRPT.org web site, fill out the forms and submit them.  They will let you know if you are lacking anything although, based on your description of your past work, you shouldn't have any problems.  If you know an NRRPT member, ask them while they sign your forms.

Four years as an RCT and an associate of science degree in radiation protection certainly qualifies you for acceptance to take the exam.

When you are accepted to take the exam come back to this forum and I will describe the most effective preparation strategy.

Congratulations on your decision to pursue registration.

And thank you Chimera for your consistent concern and assistance for your fellow technicians.

As I recall you're coming up on 40 years. Hopefully, in the words of an old Marine Corps slogan, they still make them the way they used to.

Yeah, my first commercial outage was at Maine Yankee in 1974.  And I've managed to successfully pass the NRRPT exam twice - in 1981 and again in 2009 to get my active status back after working for an engineering outfit in South Carolina for about five years.  I will support anyone who is striving to take that exam and have helped many Techs in the past prepare for it.

I am living in South Korea and I need to take the Nuf test this spring.  What are my options?  Is there an online version or a place in Asia I can take the test?  If not, where can I fly back to to take the test?  Thanks

The NUF test is taken online, via nantel, proctored by a nantel proctor.  (Those proctors are at US Nuclear plants).

Why do you think you need it in Korea?

I am teaching at an international school in Korea.  My family and I are going back to the states and I am looking to becoming a road tech.  I use to work at hanford, and I have a cousin who is a road tech now.  I want to take the test to see if I can get a job.  I need to know before I get back in June, because I will need to get a teaching jobs if I can not work on the road.

Can I take the test at Hanford?  If so, do I have to schedule the test?

Thanks

just take the nukeworker tests until you get 100s then you will be ready with minimal study time.  it isn't unheard of for a utility to allow someone to take the NUF early but it is usually because they have already worked there and know the training people very well.  its not normal.  you would probably have to know someone.  nantel has it online but I don't know how you could get access to it without being at a commercial nuclear training site.

Thanks for your response. I worked at Hanford for almost five years. I received my hp degree from eastern Idaho tech college.  I have teaching math and Pe for the last 17 years.  I want to return to the states from Korea in February to take the nuf test. I am not sure how to go about this. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

NUF Test

I purchased latest NUF Cram book. I signed up as a Gold Member. I took the NUF test over 40 times. As I got to a point where I averaged in high 90's I obtained a proctor and took the test. I got a 94 on the test.  The system works.

Can somebody answer me why the page here says:
"Free online     NRRPT  practice test
 The NukeWorker.com online practice tests are meant to assist people studying to take the NRRPT exam it provides a small database of questions similar in technical content to the actual exams. The questions are multiple choice with the correct answer given when wrong. "

But actually you have to pay in order to do practice tests?

Thank you.

The Practice tests were free in the past.  When we migrated servers, the software stopped working. We needed to raise some cash to pay the programmers to fix it.  Our options were no practice tests, or charge for them.

Has anyone taken and passed the CHP tests recently? Looking at DataChem Software and Colorado State and Dade Moeller for prep and of course the Nukeworker tests. Any help?
