Time Commitment 

Time commitment is dependent on classes being taught. We have current courses ranging from 1 hour to 60 hours, with a majority falling in the 3-4 hour range.  Core courses are taught more regularly throughout the year. Electives are scheduled heavier in the fall during the renewal period. Travel is expected throughout the year and training is on-going. Instructors will have a yearly instructor summit held in January to discuss best practices and exchange ideas. 

You will be able to decide when and where you teach. For instance, if you only want to teach on the West side of the state and only courses in the fall, that can potentially be worked out. Let us know your preferences on your application.

Other ideas

We are open to arrangements not listed here. For example, if you are interested in course development but do not want to instruct, or you want to develop online courses, let's talk!
