At Jannock, it is our goal to make people safer through knowledge and increased awareness, culture, and expectations.
Jannock was established in 2014 by Jon and Andrew and employs over 60 years of electrical and instructional experience. The instructors participate in several national and international organizations to ensure that they maintain up to date knowledge and connection with the industry and can know about the trends, new regulations, and reasoning behind them which increases their level of knowledge in the classroom. This includes organizations such as International Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), Energy Facilities Contractors Group (EFCOG), International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers (IBEW), National Fire Protections Association (NFPA), and more.
Jannock offers a variety of classes available to the public to satisfy continuing education units (CEUs), as well as private training for companies. Custom training can be developed for companies with specific needs, procedures, or equipment.
Consultation is another service we can offer. With the combined resources and knowledge of our staff, we can assist with many things to include: maintenance requirements, electrical safety programs, training programs, NEC compliance, and any other electrical question. It doesn’t hurt to ask and we are happy to help where we can.

Andrew started his electrical career by attending the Electronics Technician program at Bellingham Technical College. He completed this 2 year course of study in under 3 months prior to shipping off to the US Navy. He served 9.5 years as a Nuclear Trained Electricians Mate on Submarines, attending many schools including Electrical “A” School, Nuclear Power School, Prototype, and several specialty schools. During this time he learned valuable information regarding turbines, motors, generators, vibration monitoring, oxygen generators, hydraulics, and much more.
Following the Navy, Andrew worked at Energy Northwest (Columbia Generating Station) as the lead electrical instructor for 5 years. During this time he became a certified instructor through INPO (Institute of Nuclear Power Operations) and collaterally served as an electrical discipline supervisor for extended maintenance outages. Beyond technical training, Andrew also developed and implemented manager / supervisor training, industrial safety training, human performance / error prevention tools training, and equipment tagging processes. Andrew has since instructed for the Nuclear Technology Program at Columbia Basin College as well as for the Department of Energy at the HAMMER Federal Training Center at the Hanford Site in Richland, WA and through the Department of Energy Training Institute across the country. Andrew’s specialties include basic electrical training, electrical safety, systems training, valve operators, storage batteries, rectifiers and inverters, relays, and motors / generators.
