Planner, USS Enterprise Nuclear Test Group
Newport News Shipyard - Newport News, VA
March 1990 to June 1993
Established the sequential plan for defueling and refueling of all eight reactors on CVN-65. Each reactor plant required it's own 18 individual reactor grade piping system to be installed in a specific sequence to complete each reactor replacement. I coordinated the material acquisition, fabrication, staging, installation, removal and destruction of each system for all eight reactors. In addition, coordinated the overhaul of all molded circuit breakers with overload protection in all of the ship's 480 volt load centers. This molded circuit breaker style was retired from service by Westinghouse and had to be reactivated to support the Enterprise electrical distribution system configuration, plus there were very strict guidelines for reactivating various load centers, to support coming out of overhaul.
I was released during the first major layoff at the shipyard after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Electrician, US Navy Surface Nuclear Program

Completed the navy's BE&E, EM 'A',and the Navy's Nuclear Power School. Trained on and operated in the reactor plants on board USS California, USS Dwight D Eisenhower, USS Arkansas, and USS Theodore Roosevelt.
I advanced from a junior electrical operator up to and including leading electrician. My skills included electric plant operations, maintenance, trouble shooting, and training.
