Title: Knoxville Area
Post by: HiTechDogg on 07-21-2011 -- 16:24:36
Sorry...this is not a job posting...just an inquiry. Are there any labs in or around the Knoxville lab. I will be retiring from Wright-Patterson and am seeking something nearer my grandbabies. Thanxx for any input....

Closest lab I can think of would be Arnold AFB.
Hope it helps.

How is it going Ric?

You could go to:
http://www.a2la.org/dirsearchnew/newsearch.cfm
and search for A2LA accredited labs in TN

and/or

http://ts.nist.gov/standards/scopes/programs.htm
and use TN for the Search On-Line Directory criteria.

These will give you a listing of accredited labs in TN and you can see if any of those are close to where you want to relocate to.

Thanxxx for all the input....but I think my search may have just been narrowed. We just received word that our early-out retirement with bonus has been nipped in the bud. Unfortunately for me that means I am not elegible for full retirement until Mar/2015. So the only move I can make until then will require me to stay within the federal service. Arnold would be perfect, but it seems as though you almost have to know someone there. I am extremely happy that I did post though, as I have been able to renew some old aquintances from the lab.   :-)

I'm currently employed at Arnold & I can tell you right now the employment situation at Arnold is rather bleak.
