The Opportunity

The CompTIA A+ Instructor teaches a mixed-education level group of currently enrolled CEO participants, giving them the necessary information to prepare themselves to pass the CompTIA A+ exam. The Technical Instructor (TI) will deliver technical training classes in a virtual delivery format three days per week for a six month period (which weekdays are negotiable). This is a live instructor-led/synchronous learning platform, therefore, daily attendance and availability is required. The instructor should be someone who has a passion for training and supporting others from disadvantaged backgrounds. This includes modeling professionalism, empathy, and compassion for all learners and colleagues. As the instructor, you would be supported by a non-technical coach and report directly to the National Training Manager.

CEO's Staff Vaccination Policy

CEO has implemented an org-wide vaccination requirement that requires all new staff to be fully vaccinated before their first day of work. We have made this decision for the safety of our participants and employees and to enhance our ability to continue to provide the vital services we offer to our participants. As part of the onboarding process, new hires will be asked to submit proof of vaccination status prior to their first day of employment.

If you are unable to get vaccinated against COVID-19 for medical or religious reasons, you can request a reasonable accommodation.  An interactive meeting will be scheduled to discuss your request.  
CEO does not discriminate against individuals with actual or perceived infection with COVID19 or based on an actual or perceived history of such infection nor based on any protected status.
