Your Role

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.

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!

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 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.

About InfoSec Institute  

InfoSec Institute was founded in 1998 by an expert team of information security instructors. Their goal was to build a business by offering the best possible training experience for students. We felt that by providing the best possible hands on training, the most practical for today’s demanding workplace requirements, that the business would grow by leaps and bounds. This original assumption proved true. InfoSec Institute has trained over 15,000 individuals. Unlike other training companies that have been founded by non-technical business persons, InfoSec Institute deeply understands the needs of today’s IT professionals and is best positioned to offer world class training.
