Tyler Skelton clears Navy’s nuclear training school
Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Tyler A. Skelton has graduated from the U.S. Navy’s Nuclear Power School at Naval Nuclear Power Training Command in Goose Creek, S.C.
Skelton is the son of Andrea and Thomas Skelton of Duvall and a 2010 graduate of Cedarcrest High School.
Nuclear Power School is a rigorous six-month course that trains officer and enlisted students in the science and engineering that is fundamental to the design, operation, and maintenance of naval nuclear propulsion plants.
Graduates undergo additional instruction at a prototype training unit before serving as a surface warfare officer aboard a nuclear-powered surface ship or as an electronics technician aboard a nuclear-powered submarine.
