- Weekend workshops can run on either/both Saturday/Sunday, and are can range from 3 - 6hrs per day
- Longer, multi-week courses may be proposed as well
InterAccess’ base instructor pay is $40/hr, with a 3-hour minimum workshop format.
Workshop pricing varies according to number of hours of instruction and materials required. For instructors, InterAccess provides support in the course development process and in-class. Instructors are contracted under InterAccess’ hiring policies.
