Hi, I'm currently in the Knox/Oak Ridge, TN area. I have a background as a paralegal and private investigator. I am one test shy of having a BA from Thomas Edison State College. I do not have a trade or nuke background. My husband has worked in nukes as an electrician, but doesn't really know much about the heirarchy or day-to-day of other positions in them.
I am seeking steady decent paying work (over $15/hr) and at this point I am investigating trades. One thing I discovered was there is a school here that has a Radiation Technology Protection program. Is this a decent trade to get into; meaning, is there steady well paying work. My husband's work is not steady and I don't want to have to chase outages.
Is there another way to get in without this program? I ask, because it's a private school and if there is a way to do something w/o debt, of course I'm interested.
Are there other careers that would be fairly easy to transition into and offer year round positions?
Thank you all so much for your help.
