Johansen completes Nuclear Power School

Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Clifford L. Johansen has graduated from the Navy’s Nuclear Power School at Naval Nuclear Power Training Command in Goose Creek, S.C.

Johansen is the son of Nels and Delora Johansen of Bainbridge Island. He is a 2011 graduate of Eagle Harbor High.

Nuclear Power School is a rigorous six-month course that trains officer and enlisted students in the science and engineering fundamental to the design, operation and maintenance of naval nuclear propulsion plants.

Graduates next undergo additional instruction at a prototype training unit before serving as a surface warfare officer aboard a nuclear-powered surface ship or as an electronics technician aboard a nuclear-powered submarine.
