Last week, I got a call from a Master Chief with my Navy Recruiting District, who suggested that I change my school guarantee from Utilitiesman to one of the ratings in the Nuclear field.
If you've gone through the program, please tell me what it was like for you and what I should expect. What's the work like? What will I have to do to access the educational programs offered? What will I need to do to advance? What commissioning programs are available? How readily do the job skills taught relate to private sector work, both in and out of the nuclear industry? What should I do to prepare while I'm still in DEP?
Essentially, I'm looking for the things I can't learn from the recruiters or the Internet.
