Contract Autodesk Trainer - AutoCAD, Revit - Washington DC
- 1634 I Street NW, Washington, DC, United States
Ledet Training has been an Adobe, Apple and Autodesk authorized instructor-led training company for over 15 years. The company operates bricks and mortar facilities in Atlanta, Chicago, Denver, San Diego and Washington DC. We also deliver classes online in virtual classrooms and onsite at customer locations so we are looking for trainers throughout the US.
Trainers are sought for all Autodesk products. We have an immediate need for AutoCAD and Revit trainers.
This is a contract 1099 opportunity ideal for self-employed, independent contracting professionals seeking to supplement their business income with fairly regular opportunities to deliver classroom based instruction. We also work with employed individuals who have a flexible enough schedule to be able to occasionally teach a 2 to 5 day class, however.
Classes are typically 2 to 5 days long. Class times are 9:00 to 4:00 with a one hour lunch break. Instructors are expected to arrive by 8:00 and be prepared to stay up to an hour later, if necessary, to answer customer questions or assist them with any challenges. Classes are delivered during the business work week. We do not offer classes on evenings or weekends. Students are typically adult business professionals.
As independent contractors, trainers set their own pay rate. Different instructors charge different rates, but typically those contractors who set their daily rate competitive with others in the industry have more training opportunities presented to them. Their are approximately six hours of classroom delivery per day, but time must be budgeted for preparation and setup.
- Significant real-world experience on AutoCAD
- Great presentation skills.
- Caring attitude
- Willingness to gain certification by Autodesk as an instructor including passing relevant certification exams and attending the Autodesk instructor training class. There is no fee to Ledet Training for this, but Autodesk does charge for certification exams.
A great applicant for this opportunity is someone who has both the technical expertise in the technology they are teaching as well as the effective presentation skills and caring attention to their students necessary to help adults learn to use technology more effectively to achieve business results.
Instructors who get the best reviews are engaging and entertaining, carefully prepared and organized, and focus on what class participants can do, not on showing how much they know. They are open to constructive feedback and continually hone both their technical and delivery skills.
