Fluor'd by Good News

Train them here. Keep them here.

For good reason, that expression seems to be a popular rally cry in community college circles throughout the country. In our neck of the woods, you couldn't find a better case in point than the College of Eastern Idaho.

The college foundation has just received a $10,000 donation from Fluor Idaho to develop and launch a Nuclear Technician degree program.

This is such an exciting time for our community and for students in our region as we design classes and programs that will lead to meaningful employment and/or pathways to higher degrees at local universities,” said Lori Barber, CEI Gen Ed division manager. “With the generous donation from Fluor, we are able to add this desirable Nuclear Technician degree, which delivers well-trained staff to resident employers, while providing our graduates with excellent local employment. It is a win-win situation for everybody.”

Barber said she expects development of the Nuclear Technician degree curriculum to begin this summer. CEI anticipated classes in the discipline will be offered as early as spring 2019.
