Oil Field Program In Need Of Teachers

The Petroleum Technology program at the Bowie campus of North Central Texas College (NCTC) needs instructors to keep up with the demand of the booming oil industry.

The projected enrollment for the Fall 2013 semester will make the class-size a 300% increase from 2011. That dramatic increase has left ten Petroleum Technology classes without teachers.

"I really need somebody who has worked in the field and has extensive experience, but they also have to have the minimum of at least an Associate's degree," said program Coordinator Steve Burnett. He is looking to hire at least five, part-time instructors to teach two classes each.

The program is the only one in North Texas that prepares students for every aspect of working in the oil field industry. Burnett said 85% of students get a job in the field after graduation.

Burnett is looking for people with experience, not necessarily in teaching, but in the oil industry, because the program is extremely "hands-on."  

"We want them to be completely prepared, we want them to understand the industry, we want them to have the best set of skills that they can have," said Burnett of the students in the program.

You can contact the NCTC Bowie campus at 940-872-4002 to apply for one of the open instructor positions or to enroll in the class. The Fall 2013 semester begins Aug. 26, and the last day to register is Aug. 23.
