    Hi all,

    I'm hoping that this hasn't been asked before but if it has please feel free to sledge me and post a link :blink

    I'm currently working as an Excel/Access developer but feel like a change of career coming on. I was looking at getting into teachnig but I hate children so that might be a non starter.

    So basically I'm wondering if anyone here is a Master Intructor or could give me any advice about getting into IT Training.

    Not so much in terms of qualifications but more what the demand for Instructors is, whether you freelance; any advice really.

    A mate of mine is contracting as an IT trainer. He does all sorts of things. Excel, Word, Sharepoint, etc.
    He has contracts lined up for next 9 months at least and it's working out nice for him.

    The only downside is that the closest contract to home he's had in the last 18 months was about 150 miles away.

    Hi and thanks for the reply.

    Before my current job I was contracting for 4 years and eventually got bored with working mliles from home so its not something that I'd want to go back to doing :(

    Maybe Devon is crying out for another IT training centre :D

    Hi Dave,

    Check with your local Community College. Mine offers traditional classroom training but they also travel to businesses across the County.
    I just looked at the Community College HR's listing of over 1000 hours of travel training.
    Best of luck to you.
