At the FMC Power Foundation, we make a point to only train master electricians, mechanical technicians, and technicians who have served in the U.S. Military.
Since 2008, Megawattage LLC has delivered life-saving emergency generator installation and maintenance services throughout the CONUS and OCONUS. We’ve seen the worst Mother Nature can do. You can rest assured that we have the skill and expertise to train technicians.
FMC Power Foundation is the first 501 c3 non profit foundation set up to train and certify ex military and master electricians and mechanics to respond to federal and state declared disasters
Training and certification for generator maintenance, service, repair and installation technicians that specialize in responding to federal and state declared natural disasters and other states of emergency. These highly trained disaster response technicians are ex military or master mechanics and electricians.
Our Mission Statement
"To train and certify Service Disabled Veterans, Non Service Disabled Veterans and Master Technicians to install, service and maintain emergency power generators once a disaster has been declared anywhere in the CONUS or OCONUS.”
FMC Power Foundation
Our Public Foundation was co founded by Allen Brenner and Michael Jansen in 2012 under the name employvets.org. The original mission statement of the 501 c 3 non profit was to train Veterans to find jobs in the power generation maintenance industry. Although our name has changed, the goals of the 501 c 3 are still the same. We promise to train and certify Veterans first.
Our Proprietary Database
In 2008, prior to the formation of the Foundation, Allen Brenner and Michael Jansen began building a database of generator maintenance mechanics and electricians ready, willing and able to help the Federal government when a federally declared disaster strikes. Today, the database is owned by the Foundation and has over 2000 employee technicians ready to help our country bring the power back when a federally declared disaster strikes.
