How can I become an Instructor?

Becoming an instructor in the Carpentries requires that you take a two-day workshop we call  Instructor Training.

To request training as an instructor, please fill out this form.

We currently have a backlog of people who want to complete instructor training. We also have a large number of member organizations for whom we need to run instructor training. Therefore, if you are at an institution that is not affiliated to Software or Data Carpentry, you may have to wait until such time as we can offer open trainings again. We have run a number of these this year, and hope to run at least a couple more to try to manage the backlog of people wanting training. 

Keep an eye on our newsletter, Carpentry Clippings, or our Twitter feed for announcements.
