Several questions about getting started
« on: Apr 16, 2015, 10:03 »
First some background: I'm a senior in college and am graduating this May with a B.S. in General Physics. I have been training at a TRIGA Mk. II research reactor on my college's campus since August last year. Three weeks ago I took the NRC RO license exam for our reactor and am currently waiting for my results but am I am pretty sure I passed. I have taken a few nuclear classes but will not be graduating with a nuke minor.

I've been told that with a RO license for a research reactor I should be able to get a job as a SRO right out of college at a power reactor, will I actually be able to do that?

What is the general timeline like from application for a job to first day?

If hired will most places pay relocation expenses?

Where is the best place to start applying?

Thanks for any help!

Check out the ACAD 10-001.  I don't think your RO license would qualify you to go to a License Class for a SRO License at a Power Reactor.

Your best bet would be to try and become a Reactor Engineer at a site and then go to class.  The Physics degree is acceptable for reactor engineering according to previous job postings that I have seen.
