Employer: Perry Technical Institute

Job Description:
This is a temporary position with varying hours in the Electrical Technology program. This position will report to the Dean of Education.

The position is responsible for oversight and teaching of student groups during the field training section of the program. The position will also be responsible for covering classroom teaching as needed.

Duties are performed in a classroom, lab and field. Working effectively and collaboratively in a team environment is a must. Working conditions will often match industry as follows:
Electricians work indoors and outdoors, in homes, businesses, factories, and construction sites. On the jobsite, they occasionally work in cramped spaces, and constant standing and kneeling can be tiring. Those who work in factories are often subject to noisy machinery. As a result, hearing protection must be worn to protect workers from excess noise. Although few accidents are potentially fatal, common injuries include electrical shocks, falls, burns, and other minor injuries. Workers must therefore wear protective clothing and safety glasses to reduce these risks.
