Working in the Military you are required to learn a great deal, and if you are adept at teaching others, then a career as a military instructor or teacher may be for you. Each of the military services have different instructor fields, and each of them are always looking for personnel that can instruct, teach and educate others about specific military procedures and ways of doing things.
If you choose to be a military teacher, first you have to become proficient at a job you love. It doesn’t matter what the specialty, if you are good at a specific job then it is likely that you will be able to be successful at teaching others how to do it. Knowing the way and methods of doing a job are one huge step toward being able to instruct other on how to do it.
Once you become proficient in your chosen specialty, then you need to look for opportunities to be a teacher. Each of the services run schools where they teach specific jobs and specialties to their enlisted members. Becoming an instructor can be as simple or as difficult as being assigned to a billet or job spot at one of the military technical schools. You can find out more about what each school in your field requires by contacting the school.
There are often opportunities right where you are to become an instructor. You can sometimes become an instructor through the local community college, or also you may find that certain military jobs need an instructor right at the duty station you serve at currently. Some people find that they have a flair for teaching others, and those people are highly sought by military commanders. We have all had teachers or instructors that never should have been instructors, yet often the command or military commanders cant find anyone else to teach.
If you truly want to teach, first decide what you are good at. If you are an excellent mechanic, then perhaps you can teach an introductory course at your command for new enlistment personnel or for strikers. If you work in personnel, perhaps you can volunteer to hold a seminar on how to complete certain types of paperwork correctly.
Whatever the field, you can discover where you are able to teach effectively. Its up to you, but again its important that you select something that you are good at, and then work to be come an expert at that job skill. Then, when the opportunity comes to teach, grab it.
