NBCRightNow.com - Some 20 new graduates now hold a National Academy for Nuclear Training certificate.

Energy Northwest presented the certificates to the largest graduating class from the program at Columbia Basin College.

The program has been around since 2009 it is a partnership with Energy Northwest.

CBC is one of 33 colleges around the country to offer it.

And it is the only one in the state to be certified by the Institute of Nuclear Power Operations.

"Like myself, we're an aging workforce, right, so we'll be retiring here soon and we need that pipeline, the young graduates coming and taking our places and we want to make sure that they have the right knowledge, the base level of knowledge," said Gover Hette, VP, Columbia Generation Station.

The National Academy for Nuclear Training certificate gives recipients a professional edge, since June's commencement more than half of the recipients have received employment offers.
