(January 26, 2016, Aiken, SC) Aiken Technical College (ATC) has announced its newest program offering which aims to help address the growing need for workers in the nuclear industry.
 
The new Nuclear Fundamentals Certificate, a two-semester program, will prepare students for entry-level positions in the nuclear industry, such as general production operators.
 
“Each graduate with this certificate in hand will find multiple employers in the nuclear field, locally, regionally and even nationally, interested in their potential as a new hire,” said ATC President Dr. Susan Winsor. “We’ve been in contact with several large corporations in this field, and they are all in need of qualified nuclear workers.  We want ATC to be the college that educates, equips and provides those job candidates.”
 
The program’s curriculum, developed in collaboration with Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, will introduce students to a variety of topics related to the modern nuclear industry. Courses include applied chemistry for the nuclear industry, introduction to process control, hydraulics and pneumatics, integrated physics, radiation fundamentals, and current topics in industrial chemistry.
 
Classes for the program are planned to start Feb. 22. Those interested in enrolling must apply to the College at www.atc.edu. No application fee is required.
 
South Carolina residents may receive SC Lottery Tuition Assistance to assist with tuition cost and fees. Eligible students, regardless of their residency, may also receive up to $2,000 in Pathways grant funding to apply toward tuition and fees.
 
For more information about the nuclear fundamentals program or to enroll, call the ATC Enrollment Services Center at (803) 508-7263.
