Or one could end up like I did. 2/3 through license class and then corporate decides to retire the plant and cancel RO class. Past year+ of time studying not with family wasted. Now looking for a new job. 6 yr ELT w 7 yr PWR B&W ops experience. Thinking of going back into the HP world again.

My sympathies. You've got to be very sad after so much emotional investment into something that will never be. You must have learned some things, though. Was it still not worth it for you? Do you not want to make this investment again somewhere new?

I am a current NLO and debate going to licesne class all the time. I make good money as a NLO and my girlfriend almost makes as much as I do. We both live frugile so to me I am torn. I would love to further my "career" but then on the other hand, I make 6 figures and have very little stress so why change things. It depends on each person. Some people have kids and need the extra money. I am 31 and will have my house paid off in 3 years so I am not hurting for money at all.

but you are bored with your current job, searching for outage work, and gonna get your GF into RP work because that isn't too hard...

yeah, I don't think license class is for you either...
Remember who you love. Remember what is sacred. Remember what is true.
Remember that you will die, and that this day is a gift. Remember how you wish to live, may the blessing of the Lord be with you

Sounds like it's time to sit down and really think about what is important to you.  Once you've determined that, your decision(s) will be self-evident.
