Hey everyone, I was just wondering if anyone knew if the nuclear stations in the U.S. typically hire Nuclear Operators from Canada or if they tend to stick with American applicants. I am a Canadian who is very interested in working as a NO, but I was't sure how much mobility there is in moving across North America once I finished the two years or so as a Nuclear Operator in Training at one of the Canadian stations. I would definitely have no issues working in Canada, but I was just curious about if the American stations would consider a Canadian NO for an opening as a non-licensed nuclear operator (I believe that the NLOs in the States are comparable to Canadian "Nuclear Operators" but if I'm wrong about that please correct me). Thanks.

You would have a very good chance of getting hired.

I've heard the same thing.

There's no major barriers between US and Canadian nukes. Talking with the Canadians that I've met at INPO, we all pretty much run them the same way. The technology may be different, but the skill sets are the same.

Does anyone know if this type of movement is common or possible with any other countries? I was fortunate to be hired in Canada as a Nuclear Operator, but I'm curious if anyone has experience with taking a contract position or something similar in other countries. I'd love to spend some time working in Europe or South Africa for example.
