About
Kenneth

As a Senior Training Instructor and Supervisor Training Coordinator at Exelon's Braidwood Nuclear Generating station, my day-to-day duties range from delivering classroom training for supervisors to hands-on lab training for electricians. I am responsible for not only developing the training materials to provide state-of-the-art training to nuclear professionals who are responsible for working on some of the most critical pieces of equipment in our facility, but I also have to monitor each individual's performance in the plant to help determine their needs and gauge the effectiveness of the training we provide. These duties vary significantly -- from being a supervisor in the field during our refueling outages, to providing mentorship to new supervisors, and even benchmarking other companies and industries to find ways to improve our own processes and systems at Exelon. Continuously evaluating our programs for areas to improve is the best part of my job with Exelon. In the nuclear community, we are always striving for excellence and this aspect is extremely fulfilling as we are always developing better ways to do things.

's Advice

I am in a unique situation, as my wife is still active duty, so the financial pressure some may feel wasn't there for me. However, if you know you're separating from the service, you must have a plan for where you want to go and what you want to do. Be wise about your leave. If there is a job conference you want to go to, take leave for it, and the same goes for interviews. Don't wait until you are on terminal leave to pack in your job search, be proactive. If you get push-back from your command, just remember there is a DD-214 waiting for you at the end. It's alright to be a bit selfish, you've earned it.

As a new employee, my priority is to become qualified as a Design Engineer. A common, initial training plan for all sub-departments within engineering takes about a year to complete. Many of these courses were familiar to me from my Naval Nuclear Engineer training, but with emphasis on the particulars of a privately run, civilian power generation station. Along with that qualification track are my design qualifications, where I will be responsible for maintaining the plant's design basis (licensed configuration) when modifications need to be installed on the various systems. My role is to manage the configuration change in such a manner that, when installed, it performs its intended function and meets the standards of our license from the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), or to seek approval from them should a design change deviate from the license. Overall, the goal is to produce a quality engineering document that always ensures the safety of the public, while improving the performance of the nuclear power plant. Procedural compliance, attention to detail and a forceful questioning attitude, among other qualities, are absolutely required for this career. It is very challenging to dive deep into a problem to verify with complete certainty that you have eliminated or mitigated any potential risks to the modification, but I work with industry experts that have decades of experience in the nuclear power industry.
