My name is Rob Zachariason. I have been an instructor for Minnesota State and Community and Technical College since 2003. Prior to becoming a fulltime instructor I worked as an electrician for 11 years. My time in the electrical industry was spent working residential, commercial, small industrial, and service work. I also teach an apprenticeship course in the evenings for the Joint Apprenticeship and Training Committee. I began teaching for the JATC in the fall of 2000.
