The faculty of Chattanooga State’s Nuclear Power Technology and Radiation Protection programs will be offering a series of one-hour information sessions during the months of July and August for students interested in the nuclear power field. "These programs offer not only a quality educational path, but free tuition as well, using TN Reconnect," officials said.
Chattanooga State is participating in the pilot program of TN Reconnect for the 2017-2018 school year. Students who qualify will be awarded based on eligibility and availability of funds.
Questions about TN Reconnect should be directed to the Financial Aid Office at email@example.com.
According to the 2016 Bureau of Labor Statistics, nuclear technicians can expect to earn more than $79,000 annually. A few of the nuclear field career paths available to successful graduates include health physics, nuclear power, medical research, radiological waste cleanup, decommissioning, reactor mechanics, and operations.
The information sessions will be held in the CETAS building in the WACKER Resource Room. Attendees should use the west entrance. Sessions are scheduled for the following dates and times: July 11, July 25, Aug. 8, and Aug. 22 from 9:30-10:30 a.m.; July 20, Aug. 3, and Aug. 17 from 5:30-6:30 p.m.
