Information Technology (IT) Trainer

Information technology trainers may teach IT administrative support staff or an organization's non-technical business users how to operate, configure, and maintain new technology. Employed either in-house as part of the IT department or by a technology vendor, the information technology trainer helps a company get the most value from its investment in an IT solution.

An information technology degree helps IT professionals build a foundation for a technical training career. In addition, IT trainers must stay up to date with evolving technology. IT certification programs such as MCSE certification allow trainers to build expertise in specific vendor technologies and systems components. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, training and development specialists in all fields earned a mean annual salary of $55,310 in 2009. Software publishing was among the top-paying industries for trainers, with a salary of $71,960.
