Information Security Instructor

About InfoSec Institute:

InfoSec Institute is a company of about 50 people that is headquartered in Elmwood Park, IL and Madison, WI with 12 public enrolling locations nationwide. We are the premier provider of information security instructor led training. We are founded and managed by leading experts in the field of information security, and we work with some really cool clients (Fortune 500 Companies, CIA, FBI, NSA, and Microsoft to name a few.) Privately held with no external investors; we are stable and focused on growth. We’ve been named a Top 20 IT Training company four years in a row by Training Industry Inc. and recognized by SC Magazine as a top information security training provider, but hey – who’s counting? We’re the non-clock-watching-burners-of-red-tape that focus on success and growth, not endless meetings and petty office politics. We’ve had 450% growth in the past four years, and are always looking for talent to help us keep it that way.


What we’ll do for you: 

As an Instructor with InfoSec Institute, you’ll have the opportunity to share your real life experience with the Information Security and Information Technology world. You’ll be an influencer, motivator, and thought leader in the industry. We encourage our instructors to constantly expand their skillsets through our own certification courses (usually on the house!), helping you reach your professional and technical goals.


What you’ll do: 

You’ll be the face of InfoSec Institute and part of our growing team of full time instructors. Our instructors teach about thirty-five weeks out of the year, and spend the remainder of their time working from home, creating course material. You’ll specialize in delivering classes both online and in person via Microsoft Lync and hotel conference centers nationwide. Your mission is to educate our students with all your worldly knowledge and prepare them for the respective certification exam.


Who you are:

You have a commanding presence and are able to manage a classroom easily. You’re not just interested in a job, you have a passion for your craft and understand that sharing knowledge is one of the most important things you can do. You also know that excellent communication skills are imperative in any position, and you get a thrill from presenting to others. You’ve probably sat through a boring certification class and thought about all the ways you’d rather have learned the material. Take those ideas and implement them at InfoSec Institute; we understand that engagement is just as important as the material. Our team of instructors are friendly, determined people who love what they do and have fun doing it!

Your experience:

Because we pride ourselves on authenticity and transparency, you’ve got to have the certification you’re going to teach (or be able to demonstrate the knowledge required to obtain the certification.) We teach a lot of classes, some of our most common certifications are CEH, CISSP, CCNA, PMP, and MCSE. We also prefer that you have a related bachelor’s degree and at least 4+ years of experience in Information Technology or Information Security. We will consider you for this job if you don’t have teaching experience, but we prefer that you’ve worked in adult learning for at least one year. Part of what makes us so compelling, is that our instructors create all our course material – so you’ve got to have some experience in technical writing or curriculum development. We are going to ask you to travel (hopefully this excites you), so ability to get to Dulles, D.C., Atlanta, Dallas, Las Vegas, Colorado Springs, Chicago and San Diego are a must.
