What characteristics is SSPC looking for in an Instructor?

Your knowledge level is only a small part of the qualities that SSPC is looking for. We are also interested in whether you have the ingredients that make up a good instructor - patience, a friendly personality, an encouraging nature and a sense of humor! If you have the qualities of a good instructor then SSPC welcomes you to submit an application.
