The Department of Homeland Securityis looking to groom up-and-coming federal agents by offering a course at a Washington state high school to prepare students for their eventual employment with the agency.

Evergreen Public Schools in Clark County is seeking a “Homeland Security Instructor” that will teach juniors and seniors the skills necessary for “entry-level employment or further education in Homeland Security occupations.”

An employment application posted Saturday by the school district asks that the instructor attend all Homeland Security Advisory Committee meetings and “work in cooperation with the Skills Center administration and staff to positively promote the Skills Center, the Homeland Security program, and all Skills Center programs for student recruitment.”

The committee is made up of public and private employees who provide information and security-related recommendations to the DHS secretary, EAGnews.org reported.

The application requires a “minimum of four years of Homeland Security specific or related work experience” and makes no mention of required education.

Applicants should also have “experience and/or training or willingness” to take a course on anti-bias and multicultural education, as well as first aid and CPR.
