Nuclear Option: Energy updates throughout Florida

| 8/28/2018

Five years after the federal government funded Indian River State College to replicate its nuclear plant technician training program on a national level, the college has succeeded at supplying a new cohort of nuclear plant workers across the U.S. Since it created the nuclear education and training center at Indian River in 2011, the college has signed on 55 colleges and universities around the country and 91 private companies, plus various agencies and seven countries. All told, those institutions have trained 2,300 nuclear plant technicians using the Indian River curriculum.
Since 2006, Indian River itself has graduated 268 technicians from its two-year degree program.
