Over the next five years, the nuclear industry will need to fill approximately 20,000 jobs. One way the nuclear industry is meeting this need is through a new partnership with the U.S. Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program. This program is the first formal partnership between the Navy and the nuclear industry to transition experienced, highly-skilled naval personnel leaving the service to civilian jobs in the nuclear energy industry.
This agreement allows nuclear-trained naval personnel who have decided to leave the service following the end of their commitment to have their contact information provided to industry recruiters with nearly 30 companies. The agreement also expands the Nuclear Uniform Curriculum Program, an industry-led partnership with 38 community colleges to educate the next generation of the nuclear workforce.
