Become an Instructor

We are proud to say that most DHI instructors are our volunteers. Our instructors are from the industry and have dedicated their lives to the industry, as well as much of their own personal time to support others. As our students will tell you, our instructors care and make our classes and schools unique and life changing. The mentorship, technical wisdom and enjoyment from meeting other students from around the world is a special experience. If you’d like to become an instructor and give back to the industry, we welcome your application.
