Advance your career with a degree from Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology (BFIT) or Alfred State University. This is a great opportunity for members from the North Atlantic States Carpenters Union to move up in the industry and further their career as construction professionals.
Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology (BFIT)
A partnership between the North Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters, the North Atlantic States Carpenters Training Fund and Benjamin Franklin Institute of Technology (BFIT). allows members throughout our seven-state region to earn an Associate’s Degree in Science in Construction Management at BFIT and at a significantly reduced tuition cost.
The program is offered in a hybrid form and is not limited to members in one area of the Council. Synchronous online lectures are held, and minimal in-person labs take place at NASCTF training centers.
Though graduation from the apprenticeship program is not required, members who have completed the apprenticeship program would be granted a minimum of twenty-three (23) college credits toward their degree. Apprentice and journey-level applicants can also receive credits for other training they have received. The balance of credits can be completed over a two-year period.
This is an incredible opportunity to further a member’s career while receiving credit for the training they have already completed.
