Luzerne County Community College has entered into a partnership with the Regional Center for Nuclear Education & Training (RCNET).The RCNET is located on the campus of Indian River State College in Fort Pierce, FL.

Funded by the National Science Foundation, RCNET's mission is to ensure the demand for skilled nuclear technicians is met in a standardized and systematic way through promotion of a national uniform nuclear curriculum and development of career pathways for college graduates into the nuclear energy industry.

Through the partnership, LCCC will serve in an advisory capacity by reviewing curriculum and instructional materials developed by RCNET and by sharing its curriculum information and regional workforce data.

Also as a part of the partnership, RCNET will provide professional development services to LCCC faculty and career assistance to LCCC students.
