Education
« on: Sep 17, 2003, 06:15 »
I'm trying to get a feel for the educational background of my "target audience", in order to gauge future lesson plan development. I've found that in the past, I've "talked down" to the students, bored them, and subsequently "lost" them. I"ve also "talked over their heads", and got the "deer-in-the-headlight" look.

While we're on the subject of education, since most formal health physics training programs (outside the Navy) have become defunct, and most utilities have long since moth-balled their fundamental health physics training programs, how will we educate the "next generation"?

DOE at least still has fundametal training programs.  Utilities don't want to pay to bring in untrained people.  I takes forever with short outages but you can still go from decon-JrHP-SrHP.  Don't some house jobs have some form of training program.  Some send newbies away (I think to Oak Ridge) for intensive training.

It is (now) a hard world to live in (nuclear) and to get training!
How many folks out there are still trying to become Sr. H.P.? Some Jr.'s that I'm working with can't get enough hours in just 1 year to qual. in 4 years as a Jr. tech.!!! Short outages and only bring in a few jr.'s to sit at  control pionts isn't going to replace the number of aging Sr. tech out in the field.
So what are we (they) going to do in 5...10 years when the hand full of experenced tech. can't fill the jobs that are avaible?

Check out Lakeshore Technical College (LTC) by clicking on the ad at the top of the screen here. They have a 2 year health physics associate degree program and I think that it's all available online so is a great option for the tech on the go!  ;)
I think they also have a hazmat program there too.
LTC is located near Manitowoc Wisconsin.

Came out of HS right into HP job at Chem Nuclear. Started with "Pink" book, went to Gollnick, and worked with a lot of very knowledgable people and asked a lot of questions. Then came to DOE and started all over again because they do not think anybody can teach you like they can.
Now I just ship Hazardous Material all over the world.

I recall that "Pink" book, can't remember the title or ISBN number of it.  For my first book, it was informative.  I am sure it is way out of print by now, more of a collector interest at this point.  Loaned it to someone and it went AWOL from there.

Went to Universtity of Missouri-Rolla for a semester, discovered that as a student I was a pretty good meatcutter.  Went back to meatcutting for another 7 years until I got on with the local utility.  Sometimes I wish I'd continued with some studies, maybe after I get done with my quals in a few years.

I did four years at Elizabeth City St. ('92-96), and five years at Hampton University ('97-'02). I think i'm schooled out.
