Northrop Grumman unveils training facility

The nuclear specialists are an important part of the shipyard work
force. Just don't ask what they do.

NEWPORT NEWS -- By next year, Northrop Grumman Newport News' nuclear
workers won't need to endure long walks or be forced to navigate through
a maze of buildings along Washington Avenue to attend classes anymore.

Construction on a new training facility between 46th and 47th streets
and Washington and Huntington avenues will begin in the next few weeks
and be completed by May 2006. About 100 instructors and staff eventually
will train about 350 workers at a time in the building.

The energy industry has struggled to replace its aging employees who run
nuclear power plants with a smaller number of new nuclear engineers who
are entering the workforce. But the shipyard hasn't faced that problem
because it has such a large pool of workers onsite to train.
