Become a Continuing Education Instructor

Do you have a hobby or skill in which you excel?
Are you a natural leader?
Have you ever wanted to try teaching?
Would you like to earn extra income?

Triton College’s Continuing Education Department is looking for you!

Teaching a non-credit class at Triton or one of our high school extension sites can be rewarding in so many ways. You can experience the enjoyment of helping others increase their knowledge and skill. You can meet people with similar interests. You can earn extra income by working in an area you enjoy. Because of the nature of non-credit classes, instructors are not required to have degrees as they must be able to demonstrate expertise in the subject area. Non-credit classes usually do not run for more than a few sessions and are short term assignments.

The Triton Continuing Education Department is looking for individuals with expertise and/or experience in many areas. While we are always adding new classes we are in current need of non-credit instructors for seminars in:

  • Pharmacy Tech (Registered Pharmacists Only)
  • Lifeguards (Certified Only)
  • Real Estate Sales, Broker and Appraiser (IDPR Certification)
  • Programmable Logic Controllers
  • ISO instruction
  • CEBS Certified Trainers
  • Certified Financial Planners
  • French Language
  • Hindi Language
  • Korean Language
  • Green Technology
  • Sign Language
  • Beginning Piano
  • Ethnic Cooking
  • Yoga
