Flame,

Make sure you go to INPO.ORG while at work at PTN and review INPO ACAD 00-003 and see which of the six flowcharts you can meet for that instant-SRO position you've accepted at your new plant.

EWS for 4 years.  I had to provide them Navy paperwork to prove it (DD-214, Evals).  But thanks for the heads up.

Lots of useless junior college classes (but they seemed so interesting at the time...); basic radiation protection technology course, OJT, tld courses, remp courses, gamma spec courses, some metallurgy courses, BS in computer engineering, minor in computer science, CCNA and working on MCSE, SCADA/system automation courses (ie. triconex, allen bradley, system 1, etc)

I agree with you to a point. I went to high school in the late 70's so that alone should tell you about how much knowledge I took in.I am a deconner turned RP as you say and I have even worked with you quite a bit such as ANO and HAKE in Memphis. I agree that work exper. and hands on knowledge a big plus, but how ever being high school drop out and just a G.E.D under my belt has cost over the years. I had an interview for house job at ANO in 89 and was told my education ( lack of ) was the reason I was turned down.I will say work knowledge has helped me limp through,but now that I've made the jump I realize just how clueless I am. I see some of the JR's now that is fixin to turn SR who has just set at a check point, but does know compton scratting,pair production and could make 90-100 northeast.I see others like myself that through the years has learnt the systems and how to react.So who is the better tech ,one who knows the book or one who knows the job. The answer I think it takes a lot of both.These days a person can never have enough education if college or from another tech. class. I wish now I would have listened then. Tarbox" Stay with it" keep on the track your on it will make you the better tech, because I know where you came from and what you can be

Agreed a college education is not necessary to be successful in this business, but it doesn't hurt you one bit. Any knowledge one can acquire, whether by college or trade schools is better than nothing.And it helps your resume', too.

I was a vocal music education major at FSCC (Ft. Scott, KS). Left there before finishing my Associate's, moved to GA, took another year or so at GA Southern, ran out of $$. Worked some crap jobs and was 24 and homeless before checking the service out. Navy nuke pipeline (ET), and ETMS since then. Going to be completing a degree eventually.
