I know nothing at all about Texas except that you're not supposed to mess with it but... Your DD214 along with a decent resume should speak for itself. The trouble with find a stationary engineer's job is you usually have to wait until someone dies for a position to open up. Any Human Resources guy with half a brain should recognize the depth of the experience you're packing.
Look into the State/Local licensing requirements and prep for the exams.
a hint... civilians run their deaerators at 10-15 psi, not the 45 psi I was used to... I pooched that question.
Tom - ex hole snipe
: Please, I need help--I am an active duty E-8 Conventional Machinist Mate with experience in Open 1200 and 600 PSI steam plants in addition to HVAC and hydraulics. I have been in 26 years, and just love to make electricity, but the problem is that I have been to a few job fairs (I am getting out in 11 months, and I really need some help in what courses that I can take at a college or training facility to prove what I know, I am of couse willing to start at the bottom, but I need to know what are the best schools in the Houston Texas area I can enroll in to give me a piece of paper to go with my knowledge. If there are any old snipes out there, please lend me some advice, I do not want to greet people at Wal-mart, I want to stay steaming.
