Client Professional Services (RPS) is seeking cyber security Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) for the development of cyber security related courses for multiple programs. The course materials will be developed as new training materials or modifications of existing materials for Instructor Lead Training (ILT) courses.
The courses are in various states of development ranging from needing analysis to determine what will be developed, the timing of the course and suggested media to analysis is complete and development is underway. Where applicable, we have indicated the status of each of the courses.
SMEs are not expected to be knowledgeable on all courses. SMEs may be assigned to multiple courses depending on bandwidth and knowledge. Course development may not be full time for the Period of Performance (POP) indicated for each course.
Please provide a rate card for SMEs, by course if necessary, for this Statement of Work. Indicated if full time or part time work is preferred.
