Since 2008, the Department of Energy’s primary contractor, Savannah River Nuclear Solutions, and Aiken Technical College have worked together as partners to develop graduates who enter into careers throughout the region and, frequently, at the Savannah River Site.

SRNS has provided support to ATC in the form of monetary grants, donated equipment and expert consultation, which has helped form multiple programs fulfilling vocational needs in many areas within SRNS.

ATC’s programs related to manufacturing, information technology, nuclear quality systems and radiation protection, as well as others, have produced dozens of knowledgeable and well-trained students who are now SRS employees.

Former ATC students, now full-time SRNS employees work through annual requalification training as radiological control inspectors at SRS.
