CALL FOR Training


Help us launch a day of training on the Monday after DEF CON 28!

DEF CON is looking to add a single day of training right after DEF CON 28 on Monday August 10, 2020, and we're looking for trainers to teach classes and get paid to do so.

DEADLINE TO SUBMIT: May 1st, 2020

What: DEF CON 28 Call For Trainers
When: Monday August 10, 2020
How: To submit please cut and paste the submission form below into the body of an email or within a single .txt file and send it to training[at]defcon[dot]org. We request that applications are in plain text only to avoid disfiguring formatting errors. If you are submitting multiple applications, please submit them as separate emails. If you wish to send your submission encrypted via PGP please use KeyID:3A276723 for Nikita(at)DEFCON(dot)org.

Because this is new for DEF CON we don't know the demand but we are aiming for more affordable training options for students on a wide range of technical topics. Interested?

Your class would be 8 hours of instruction plus breaks for coffee and lunch. DEF CON will provide the space, marketing, and infrastructure and you focus on the content!
