CBC Program Hopes to Create Next Generation of Nuclear Technicians

As baby boomers retire, the need for nuclear technology workers will be great and Columbia Basin College hopes to fill the demand for qualified nuclear technicians.

According to the United States Department of Labor Statistics, employment of nuclear technicians is projected to grow by 14 percent from 2010 to 2020 due to greater demand for nuclear energy. The department reported that the entry requirement for such work was an AA degree and that median pay for nuclear technicians in 2010 was over $68K a year.

Columbia Basin College is now accepting applications for its new Nuclear Technology program, a two-year Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree program which offers three degree options: Instrumentation and Control Technology, Non-Licensed Nuclear Operator and Radiation Protection Technology.

CBC is now accepting applications for fall semester 2013.
