From the author
I consider myself to be a lifelong learner and have been professionally involved in the arena of training for over twenty years. I won’t bore you with lots of personal details but I will share what I think will add some credibility to this blog.
After serving in the US Nuclear Navy, I began an academic career while working and going to Columbia Basin Community College. I received an AA in Arts and Sciences.
Vowing not to go to school and work full time ever again (you will see how foolish a notion that was) I took a leave of absence from work and went to Western Washington University were I completed a BA in Technology Education.
Returning to work as an instructor at a reactor facility, I completed an MS in Instructional and Performance Technology at Boise State University.
