My son is being processed out as he took a test around week 5 that flagged him for ADHD. He is disappointed but he is telling me that he still will leave with a TS1 security clearance which will help him get desirable jobs in civilian world. He said he will have a RE code of 8 so in the future he could reapply perhaps to go in Navy. He was going to be a Nuke so he says they already invested time and money in getting his security clearance... does this make sense that he would leave with this security clearance? He keeps telling me it is a TS1 security rating... not sure what that means? Any help would be appreciated...
I got this from Wikipedia:
Security clearance levels often appear in employment postings for Defense related jobs, and other jobs involving substantial amounts of responsibility, such as air traffic control or nuclear energy positions. Employers generally prefer to hire people who are already cleared to access classified information at the level needed for a given job or contract, because security clearances can take up to a year to obtain. In general, most employers look for candidates that hold an active Department of Defense (DoD) collateral clearance or a blanket TS/SCI-cleared (Top Secret / Sensitive Compartmented Information) individual that has successfully completed a counterintelligence (CI) or full-scope polygraph (FSP).
TS1= Top Secret
