American Trainco is constantly expanding and looking for new, qualified trainers
and trainers with new topics. With thousands of seminars conducted each year, we
offer trainers a steady and reliable source of income with the most professional
staff in the industry. If you think you are qualified to be an American Trainco
trainer, we would like to hear from you!
Depending on your needs, experience and requirements for trainers in your subject
matter expertise, you may be considered for an employee instructor or contract instructor
position. American Trainco works successfully with both employee and contract instructors
on for open enrollment seminars, on-site seminars, consulting and curriculum development.
If you have a course topic that you teach but don't see it listed on the American
Trainco web site, please don't hesitate to contact us. We are always looking for
new classes and markets.
What We Look for in an Instructor
When we hire our instructors, we want to know three things:
- Do they have a formal education?
- Have they ever spent time in the field doing actual work?
- Are they experts at teaching?
If they answer "yes" to all these questions, then we start getting picky. Instructors
who want to teach with American Trainco truly need to be a leader in their field.
We don't hire field people without teaching experience, and we don't hire teachers
without field experience. Our instructors need to have both, and are required to
keep our classrooms entertaining and lively, ensuring our students a positive and
enjoyable learning experience.
Anyone can teach theory, but there simply is no substitute for experience. What
sets American Trainco apart is our ability to communicate that experience into the
brains of our students. As one attendee told us at the end of his two-day training
course, "I think I can go back to work now and teach the veterans a thing or two."
