Many people have already started looking into the career path.
Alternate Careers
- Electricians are nearly self explanatory. They desgin and draft diagrams to plot out electrical systems. Afterwards, they install circuits and wires. They also inspect equipment that would normally be found in a circuit. Breakers and Transformers are most common.
What Do We Do?

Powerline Technician
- Powerline technicians install power lines. They maintain them on a scheduled basis. In the event that one is damaged they repair or install a new powerline. They are also trained to repair and maintain telecommunication lines as well. In addition they work in hazardous conditions such as near high voltage and great heights.
Power Plant Operators
- Power Plant Operators manage power plants. The job can be very tiring while operating the plant from control rooms. If employed at a Nuclear Plant you must have a license and must meet other necessary standards. It requires attention and extensive knowledge of the plant to operate. On the job and classroom training are the most efficient ways to get into this career.
Nuclear Engineer
- Nuclear engineers play an extremely important role in a Nuclear Reactor. They design it and manage its operations. After a reactors construction the engineer(s) normally inspect the reactor while its at work. It's a hard position to get to but, only because it will always be a hazard not only to humans but, the environment forever. The materials created however, can also be used in medical and industrial facilities
Hydroelectric Technician
- A Hydroelectric technician operates and maintains hydroelectric generators. They normally work around a dam or river. Working with pipelines, watervalves, and heavy equipment are required. Being informed of water levels and the plants wastes are important on the job.
Wind Turbine Technician
- Install and maintain wind turbines. Requires Some College but, no degree Median Wage- $45,970
Oil/Gas Extractor
- Work with heavy equipment on oil rigs in the mass bodies of water or on land. High school diploma is optional based on employer. Median Wage- $48,000
Chemical Engineer
- Apply the principles of science to make more efficient fuels, drugs, foods, etc. Requires a Bachelor's Degree. Median Wage- $94,350
