Welcome to NukeWorker ;D

I'm not sure what a "Red Badge" is, so it is difficult to tell you the answer to some of your questions. The only reference I personally know of that refers to red badge is "red badge" training at a plant that escapes my memory right now, old guy thing <sigh> :D However, it was basically the nuc worker training for access to the plant, some plants call this NGETor GET, which would be valid for 1 year. There would be no cost to obtain this, as you would be given this training as part of in-processing at whatever power plant you were hired in at.

As far as the DUI thing goes, there are many posts about that on here, and I suggest you do some searching on the site. I don't think it will be an issue seeing as how it was so far in the past. The main thing to remember is to be HONEST and don't try to hide ANYTHING, they will find out.

Good Luck, and again Welcome to NukeWorker

Just to be clear, you are saying your last DUI was at or over 9 years ago. Right?  I will assume you can also so say no to any recent drug stuff too as you likely know Nuke work will put you back into operation golden flow :)

I can not answer you other questions but thought we should make clearer your situation.

Good Luck getting the info you need.

Many years ago the red badge was the color of the basic worker security badge at DOE sites.
Please tell us ric46, what type of nuclear work site you are talking about.

When I think of a "Red Badge", I think of what PWHoppe refers to which is being Rad Worker Qualified.

I also agree to be HONEST when filling out the paperwork they give you.
