LOL Marlin. I assume your emoticon expresses that I am idiot because I was not an ELT. 

What emoticon???

That is smug of you and entirely unnecessary.  It is easy to scorn those who were not Navy Trained but many who formed and supported this business over the past 40+ years were trained by real-world RP techs who learned by doing and seeing the worst it can be. 

No scorn just another perspective to yours. I personally did not see any ex ELTs with that attitude in that timeframe. I might add that there were not 40 year plus techs at that time and I taught a lot of the "real world" techs you speak of shortly after leaving the Navy.

  I was the offered the job that would have made me your supervisor in 1985.  I have worked with you periodically throughout the years and my brother (whom I introduced into the business) worked right next to you for many years.  So, I stand by my previous post.

Really you were offered a job in Outage Management where I went from RP in that time frame. Knowing who the RPM that hired me in as a supervisor I have some doubt to that job offer as they were not looking for new management until after I left RP.

Just sayin'  [coffee]

Well I could be wrong. I thought that you were at Fermi in 1985.  If that is not the case my bad.  But I was offered the Gen Supervisor job at that facility , which I turned down (re: John Bobba) due to an accepted permanent position at another NPP at the same time.  I have never worked in outage management but have filled all NPP RP positions below RPM.  As for the emoticon, it appears in your signature line.  If it is not meant to be an opinion of responders to your posts maybe you should delete it.  In closing, I also taught many RP techs new to the business.  I was not trained by the government, but I learned my craft by studying the available texts and listening to people who were experienced.

Look we could both compare lifetime dose, training and experience, awards and certificates, or we could just unzip and compare - if that's your preference. But my original post was actually geared to the fact that ELT (navy) training does not relate the commercial nuclear work as much as one may imagine.  Can ELTs hack in it the commercial arena?  Yes, but not all.  Truth be told, When I'm a Supervisor at an outage, I assign a good Junior RP tech to work with a new ex-navy/DOE tech to keep him out of trouble until he/she has my confidence.  "Trust but Verify"

A reminder to myself but not bad advice for those who deal with Trolls.

Also not a bad idea for someone who is working in a plant not in his experience moving to a boiler from PWR and vice-a-versa. Would apply to someone from commercial power moving to a DOE site with transuranics  or criticality issues not dealt with in commercial etc.

.........But my original post was actually geared to the fact that ELT (navy) training does not relate the commercial nuclear work as much as one may imagine...........

which has absolutely nothing to do with the topic of this thread but hey WTF?!?!?!?,...

you got to hear yourself type and brag about how frickin bad ass you are compared to those who are government trained,...

and truth be told, it's been a dam long time since any supervisor I coordinate with has assigned a junior to monitor a Sr. Tech regardless of where that senior tech earned their spurs,...

commercial power is just not done that way anymore, and has not been for a dam long time,...

hell, a junior is lucky if they can make senior within 8 years,...

and, when that senior fails and your answer to management is that you had a junior babysitting 'em?!?!?!?!

Well, not at an INPO 1 plant pal,...

maybe where you hang your hat,...

in the meantime, if you want to rip the "government trained",.... go start your own thread and have at it,...

oh yeah, Marlin's a nice fella,...

not me,...

been there, dun that,... the doormat to hell does not read "welcome", the doormat to hell reads "it's just business"

Plenty of bad techs who were ELTS.  And plenty who were not.

I don't see how anyone can judge government training (Navy) unless they have been though it.  Can you tell us what medical school was like because you met a doctor? You must have special insight.
