The Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology, founded in 1908, is a private, non-profit, two-year technical college located in Boston's South End. The college is proud of its long tradition of educating students who aspire to advance themselves in a technical field. We provide our students with the technical and professional skills that will create a foundation for success, civic responsibility, and life-long learning, adhering to the principles put forth by our benefactor, Benjamin Franklin.
The Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology (BFIT) invites applications from committed and positive licensed Journeyman/Master Electricians to teach full-time or part-time in the Department of Electrical Technology. This program focuses on preparing students to become Journeyman Electricians. Courses such as Circuit Theory, Electrical Design & Layout, Electrical Machinery, and Low Voltage Systems & Controls provide the technical focus for an associate degree program, but also serve as the educational hours that are required for eligibility to sit for the Massachusetts Journeyman Electrician licensing exam. The Massachusetts State Board of Examinees of Electricians mandates that this position is filled by an individual who holds either a Journeyman or Master Electrician license in the state of Massachusetts. The college prefers a master’s license which may be obtained within 2 years of accepting a position. Other candidates need not apply.
Through teaching, participation in institutional initiatives, and pursuing professional development, the faculty member contributes to the mission, outcomes, and strategic plan of the department and the College. Faculty at BFIT embrace the opportunity to support a diverse group of young people in meeting a range of academic and other challenges to prepare for successful and rewarding careers in technological fields.
