Murray -- -- doesn't the first word that -- college gradual wants to hear but as today's monthly jobs data shows that doesn't happen agreements right now.
There is one industry doubt.
That is absolutely desperate for workers nuclear power.
Randy adding -- its chief nuclear officer airs -- a public service Randy.
-- you so much for joining us today we appreciate your time.
We understand -- about half of the industry's workforce is eligible to retire.
In ten years what a second -- mean for the industry.
That's correct and let's the industry has been looking at how we've been losing the people to retirement for quite -- while we've been developing.
With courses in colleges and hiring people regularly throughout the recession.
But still you think you don't have enough workers in -- jobs that are open right now in and -- to Belmont.
-- we actually we have pipelines but we're eliminate about -- -- 5000 workers at least for the next five years.
Probably more more of the people are eligible to retire.
So we're looking at different ways to continue to see business pipeline with technicians engineers -- all kinds of people.
So what are the ways to do that -- that there is a mismatch in this country right now there about two and a half million jobs and a lot of them are engineering of some type.
And people who are out there right now don't have the trading to fill these jobs in Europe there actively trying to fill the pipe what -- you sad.
What do you states and what do parents have to deal to get people ready get kids ready to take these jobs.
Who have numerous ways my almost all of those plants that we work -- way we work together and there's 38 junior colleges and we've.
Identified through nuclear energy institute has partnered with various plants that seed students and that we -- involved a four year colleges.
And a misnomer is we need engineers of all types people like we just think nuclear engineers and that's only 10% of it.
We take all kinds of standard engineers and Reinemund -- training programs.
Improperly towards for the plan.
No absolutely I mean we hear this across the country -- -- is an adult right now that's unemployed.
Can they go back to school and get trained for this type of work how long does it take how much is -- cross or is it just sort of a loss products.
Absolutely the junior colleges.
We hit the two year associate degree there's 38 colleges -- have been done side.
They give a nuclear certificate and a certificate is along with a degree as transferable to any nuclear plant in the country.
So anybody could go and of those programs that makes you qualified technician -- -- four year college programs we can work with.
And Randy I have to ask you you know really obvious question a lot of people on our audience I wonder when we do segments like this is it safe to work at a nuclear power plant.
It is absolutely -- to work in the -- our planet and unfortunately.
We wanna continue to make sure that the facts and figures are out there that people have information like good choices -- not working on nuclear industry.
From -- as a teenager right here tonight we nuclear submarines and thirty something years commercial nuclear industry and its extremist side.
Is -- summer people can go online to get more information about that's.
Real quick branding but.
Absolutely nuclear energy institute has web sites and every and other from the country energy institute would be the primary source -- -- I think Randy Eddington thanks so much for coming on today so much good information we really appreciate your time.
Because she most -- tragedy and it was such a setback for the whole nuclear and it energy industry -- where where you are dependent on management and that energy in this country no matter what yet if interesting discussion there.
