ASAP in Electrical Technology


Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology (BFIT) is excited to announce an Advanced Standing Associate Program (ASAP) specifically for Electricity students graduating from Massachusetts Career Vocational Technical High Schools. ASAP allows students the opportunity to graduate from BFIT with an Associate of Science in Electrical Technology, as well as earn the remainder of their 600 instructional classroom hours required for Journeyman Electrician Licensure (237 CMR 13.06), in as little as 12 months. 

This program not only allows students to graduate faster, but opens the door to earn an Associate Degree at half the cost!  

How It Works

Students who graduate from a regionally accredited high school with a minimum of 200 instructional hours towards the state Journeyman Licensure may qualify. The student must graduate with a 3.0 (4.0 scale) high school GPA, as well as a 3.0 (4.0 scale) GPA in his or her electrical courses. Students who meet these criteria qualify to apply to the Advanced Standing Associate Program.

Students accepted into the program will be awarded credit for a year of Electrical courses—18 college credits—towards an Electrical Technology Associate Degree at Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology for the work they have already accomplished. Once students enroll at the College they will be given the opportunity to complete the remaining required course work in as little as 12 months at the cost of one academic year.
