Nuclear Technician Manpower Survey: Approach to an Information System.
Braden, Paul V.; Paul, Krishan K.
The Southern Interstate Nuclear Board, which is concerned with the economic development of a 17 state area and Puerto Rico, conducted a one-year study of the availability of trained manpower for the nuclear industry. Specific objectives of the study were to: (1) identify and measure the need for nuclear technicians, (2) identify the adequacy and availability of the nuclear technician supply, (3) identify potentially feasible patterns of cooperation between the training institutions and employing organizations, (4) determine procedures for interfacing nuclear technician supply and demand, and (5) incorporate a systems approach to the development of this manpower field. Based on the analysis of survey data, major conclusions were: (1) Training institutions within the region have not kept pace with the increase in demand for nuclear technicians, (2) There is a need for educational programs of less than 2 years duration, (3) Present information sources are not sensitive to new and emerging fields, and (4) There is a need for more systematic and continuous information sources. It was recommended that survey results be updated at regular intervals. (JS)
