Years of on-the-job-training. Large power companies have mandatory on-going school/training evolutions. These programs are dedicated to help raise the aptitude of workers no matter what background one has. The training is a pre-requisite for all individuals looking to advance in their career. No matter if the employee has an engineering degree, or a high school diploma, training evolutions are normally required for career advancement. It takes many years to mature as a fully qualified power plant operator, regardless of ones background.
